Saudi says world has "betrayed" Syria rebels

Saudi Arabia's crown prince on Tuesday said the international community had "betrayed" Syrian rebels by being slow to provide them with arms as they fight to topple President Bashar al-Assad's regime.

Crown Prince Salman bin Abdulaziz, addressing the Arab summit in Kuwait City, said a "legitimate resistance betrayed by the international community and left easy prey to tyrant forces" is facing challenges in the conflict-hit country.
