Kerry likens Syria challenge to mapping ‘course out of hell’

Secretary of State John Kerry is heading into another round of talks on Syria with the monumental task of charting “a course out of hell.” Kerry is scheduled to depart for Vienna Wednesday, where he hopes to advance a peace process. Before leaving, he offered a dire assessment of Syria’s four-year civil war at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. He cited harrowing statistics: one in 20 Syrians killed or wounded; one in five now refugees; average life expectancy down 20 years.
