Saudi Arabia May Pay Salaries of Free Syrian Army, Guardian Says

June 23 (Bloomberg) -- Saudi Arabia plans to pay the salaries of the rebel Free Syrian Army to increase pressure on President Bashar al-Assad, the Guardian reported.

The funding has been discussed between officials from Saudi Arabia, the U.S. and Arab countries, according to the London-based newspaper, which cited unidentified people in three Arab states. Turkey has allowed a command center to be established in Istanbul to organize weapons supply to the rebel army, the Guardian reported, without saying where it got the information.
