ZAATARI, Jordan — Britain's prime minister says newly re-elected President Barack Obama must do more to end Syria's civil war, urging him to join the British. in opening direct talks with rebel fighters.

Cameron says that in talks with Obama he would stress "we must do more to try and solve this crisis."
