Arming Syria opposition a "duty": Saudi foreign minister

DUBAI (Reuters) - Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal renewed calls to arm the Syrian opposition on Saturday, describing it as a "duty".

"The arming of the opposition is a duty, I think, because it cannot defend itself except with weapons," Faisal said during a joint news conference with U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
