      Congress Holding Up Transfer of Weapons to Syrian Rebels


      U.S. sources told the Reuters news agency on Monday that congressional committees are holding up a plan to send U.S. weapons to rebels fighting Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad.

      The delay is over fears that such deliveries will not be decisive and the arms might end up in the hands of Islamist rebel groups.
