China warned of global economic risks linked to a potential U.S.-led military intervention in Syria's civil war. Chinese Vice Finance Minister Zhu Guangyao says such "military action would definitely have a negative impact on the global economy, especially on the oil price."
An international aid group that supports doctors in war zones said one of its Syrian surgeons was killed in the northern Syrian province of Aleppo. Doctors Without Borders said that the 28-year-old surgeon, Dr. Muhammad Abyad, died in an attack. Abyad, whose body was found Tuesday, had been working in an Aleppo hospital run by the group also known as Medecins Sans Frontieres.
