Cairo:  Arab foreign ministers postponed a planned meeting on the Syrian conflict that had been due to take place in Saudi Arabia later on Sunday, a top Arab League official said.

Ministers had been due to meet in in the Red Sea city of Jeddah to mull their next moves on the Syrian conflict after the resignation of UN-Arab League envoy Kofi Annan earlier this month, as well as who might succeed him.

The meeting was "postponed until a later date," the pan-Arab bloc's deputy secretary general, Ahmad Bin Helli, told reporters at League headquarters in Cairo.
