Fears Syria crisis could spread across region

Hillary Clinton set to meet Saudi leaders in Riyadh amid growing fears Syrian crisis could spread across the region.

    Hillary Clinton, the US secretary of state, is expected to meet Saudi leaders in Riyadh on Friday, with the crisis in Syria topping the agenda.

    Clinton is set to hold talks with King Abdullah, Prince Saud al-Faisal, the Saudi foreign minister, and other senior Gulf diplomats to find ways to end the bloodshed in the country.

    International diplomacy has so far failed to end the conflict and there are growing fears that it could spread across the region.
