Syrian opposition leaders are pressing diplomats at an international conference for a no-fly zone over Syria, but the US and its European and Arab partners are expected to focus on economic sanctions instead.

Hassan Hashimi, general secretary of the opposition Syrian National Council, said the international community is still moving too slowly. He said he hopes to see a “tough stand” at Friday’s so-called Friends of Syria conference in Paris, and a no-fly zone to prevent military forces “flying over defected soldiers and civilians and bombarding them.”

His request for a no-fly zone is based on a similar move implemented against Libya during the final months of Gaddafi’s regime.
