G-8 struggles with Syria issue - Jun 18th, 2013 - International

— Syria is still a key issue as G-8 leaders meet in the home stretch of their two-day summit.

The big question is whether all eight members can express a joint position on ending the 2-year-old civil war.

Other issues include deterring kidnappings of foreign workers in Africa and cornering globe-trotting companies into paying more taxes.
