EU explores 'all options' on Syria sanctions

BRUSSELS - European Union governments will discuss the possibility of imposing sanctions against Syria on Friday, with various measures being explored, a spokesman for the EU executive said on Wednesday. "There will be a meeting on Friday ... All options are on the table," foreign affairs spokesman Michael Mann told reporters at a European Commission briefing.
If agreed, EU sanctions would likely start with asset freezes and travel restrictions against key officials, diplomats have said.
