A senior Republican U.S. senator on Sunday called for arming Syria's rebels through the Arab League and suggested the imposition of "no drive" and "no fly" zones against Syrian military forces targeting the opposition.

Senator Lindsey Graham, an influential Republican voice on international policy, also said he was joining with Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal to push a Senate resolution calling on the United Nations to declare Syrian President Bashar al-Assad a war criminal.
