US, UK say they're weighing new sanctions on Syria, Russia
LONDON - The United States and Britain say they're considering new economic sanctions on the Syrian and Russian governments because of their conduct in war-ravaged Aleppo.
After a 10-nation meeting in London, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said crimes against humanity were occurring daily in Syria.
Kerry and British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson are expressing hope about a diplomatic effort with Russia and several other countries that Kerry began on Saturday.
But they said they're planning to increase pressure on Russia and Syria to halt airstrikes on Aleppo, Syria's largest city.
Johnson and Kerry said sanctions could be applied against Syria and its supporters.
Johnson also spoke of trying to advance prosecutions of "war criminals."
