US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton arrived today in Istanbul for talks on the conflict in Syria with Turkish leaders after Washington slapped fresh sanctions on Bashar al-Assad's regime and its allies.

Clinton flew in after wrapping up a nine-nation Africa tour.

The visit comes after Washington announced sanctions on Syrian state oil company Sytrol for trading with Iran, in a bid to starve the regimes in both Tehran and Damascus of much-needed revenue.
