Russia calls Syria violence outrageous, wants talks

RIYADH - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov condemned the violence in Syria as "outrageous" and said opponents of President Bashar Assad needed to integrate the opposition inside Syria into their ranks.
His comments came after talks in the Saudi capital Riyadh with foreign ministers of the six-member Gulf Cooperation Council, which the Qatari foreign minister said had failed to bridge the differences between the two sides.
