      More than 60 Countries to Discuss Syria Friday


      Representatives of more than 60 countries are scheduled to gather, Friday, in Paris to discuss advancing a solution to the crisis in Syria, where an estimated 16,000 people have died in the government's violent supression of dissent since March 2011, including members of President Bashar Al-Assad's security forces.

      The diplomats are expected to formulate a plan of measures to increase pressure on the Assad regime. The plan will be submitted to the United Nations.
