Kerry urges Syrian peace talks to continue despite attack

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry appealed on Sunday to both sides to continue Syrian peace talks in Geneva despite an attack by Islamic State bombers that killed more than 60 people near the country’s holiest Shi’ite shrine. Kerry said the conflict could easily engulf the Middle East if no negotiated settlement was achieved. “In the end there is no military solution to the conflict,” Kerry said in a televised statement.
