UN Envoy to Meet with Assad in Syria

The international envoy Lakhdar Brahimi is scheduled to meet with President Bashar al-Assad of Syria on Saturday, the United Nations said, as he tries to find a way to end the Syrian conflict, which has killed thousands.

Mr. Brahimi, who replaced Kofi Annan, the former United Nations secretary general, at the start of September as the special envoy representing the United Nations and the Arab League, arrived in Damascus, the Syrian capital, on Thursday as government forces pounded the city’s eastern outskirts to flush out rebels trying to retain a foothold there.
