U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Thursday left a meeting of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe to head to Paris for further meetings on Syria on Saturday, German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier told reporters. Kerry told reporters after a second bilateral meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in Hamburg that he was "hopeful" about reaching an accord with Moscow that would allow Syrian rebels to safely leave the besieged city of Aleppo. France, a backer of the opposition to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, is convening foreign ministers of like-minded countries in Paris on Saturday to seek a strategy in the wake of the Aleppo onslaught, although few diplomats expect anything concrete to be achieved.

Volkswagen logo is pictured at the newly opened Volkswagen factory in WrzesniaBy Alissa de Carbonnel BRUSSELS (Reuters) - The European Union started legal action on Thursday against seven countries including Germany and Britain for failing to police emissions test cheating by carmakers after the Volkswagen scandal. Amid mounting frustration in Brussels over what it sees as governments colluding with the powerful car industry, the European Commission is wielding the biggest stick it has - potentially going in court - to try to force nations to clamp down on diesel cars spewing health-harming pollution. German officials - who say EU law is poorly framed - had been skeptical Brussels would take on the EU's leading power and by far its biggest carmaker at a time when the unity of the bloc is being challenged by eurosceptics and Britain's vote to leave.
