EU agrees to allow some non-lethal aid for Syrian opposition

Feb. 28, 2013 10:16 P.M. (Updated: Feb. 28, 2013 10:16 P.M.)
BRUSSELS (Reuters) -- The European Union said it amended sanctions on Syria on Thursday to permit the supply of armoured vehicles, non-lethal military equipment and technical aid to the Syrian opposition, provided they were intended to protect civilians.

The measure, adopted by EU governments, extends EU sanctions on Syria until June 1 and responds to pressure from Britain and others to ease the EU arms embargo to help opponents of President Bashar Assad.
