      Muslim Bloc Calls for Palestinian State, Slams 'Occupation'

      The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) on Monday called on the international community to support an independent Palestinian state, as it opened a conference also focusing on the crises in Syria and Mali, reported AFP.

      Outgoing chairman Mahmoud Ali Youssouf described the issue of the Palestinian state as the "central question" for the world's largest grouping of Muslim nations as he launched its three-day Council of Foreign Ministers meeting in the Guinean capital Conakry.
