U.S.: Some Positive Signs in Syria, But Not Enough


The United States said on Thursday that it saw some positive signs in Syria, where Arab League monitors are deployed, but said those were not enough.

“We’ve seen a modest prisoner release, but it appears that the most important high-profile political activists have not been released,” State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland told reporters. “And we also want to see Syria opened to the press.”
