Britain's former Secretary for Work and Pensions, Iain Duncan Smith, arrives for a television interview in LondonHigh-profile Conservatives outlined proposals for a post-Brexit system of work permits on Saturday, highlighting the pressure Prime Minister Theresa May faces to cut immigration and appease eurosceptics while addressing the concerns of business leaders. May is due to speak on Sunday during the first day of the ruling Conservatives' annual conference with the government having given little detail as to what it will seek from the European Union as part of a Brexit deal. Many of the 52 percent of Britons who backed leaving the bloc were motivated by concerns about immigration from within the EU, but business leaders are concerned about a so-called 'hard Brexit' involving immigration caps and excluding Britain from the single market.

MOSCOW (Reuters) - "Direct aggression" by the United States toward the Syrian government and armed forces would lead to "frightening, tectonic shifts" in the Middle East, RIA news agency cited Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova as saying on Saturday. Russia and the United States back opposing sides in the Syrian conflict. A U.S.-Russian brokered ceasefire in Syria recently fell apart, and Russian war planes on Saturday struck rebel-held areas north of the Syrian city of Aleppo. (Reporting by Alexander Winning)
