US Secretary of State John Kerry warned countries from Europe and beyond on Thursday to beware of an increasing "danger of authoritarian populism."

Kerry spoke at a meeting in Hamburg of foreign ministers from the 57-nation Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe. The group, chaired by Germany this year, includes European Union countries, the US, Russia, Ukraine, Turkey, Central Asian nations and others.

In "too many places" in the OSCE region, he said, there has been "a rise of authoritarian thinking, accompanied by backsliding on human rights, restrictions on independent media, a spike in acts of intolerance and hate crimes," Kerry said.
