France says UN talks have begun on whether to impose sanctions on Syria rebel group linked to al-Qaeda.

The UN Security Council has begun informal talks on whether to impose sanctions on Syria's rebel al-Nusra Front after it pledged allegiance to al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahri this week, according to France.

Western powers and their Arab allies favour the overthrow of President Bashar al-Assad but are alarmed by Sunni Muslim fighters whose fiercely anti-Shi'ite ideology has fuelled sectarian tensions in the Middle East. - Reuters
