Clinton, Gulf officials to discuss Syria as tensions soar

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton arrives in Saudi Arabia on Friday for talks aimed at ending bloodshed in Syria as opposition activists report new shelling and raids in several neighborhoods.

Clinton will meet various Gulf officials, including Saudi's King Abdullah, to discuss bilateral and regional issues. Talks will include continued efforts to end the bloody crackdown against anti- government protesters in Syria.

She will then travel to Istanbul on Saturday and Sunday to attend the second meeting of the "Friends of the Syrian People."

"This meeting will build upon steps that our friends, allies, and the Syrian opposition continue to take in an attempt to halt the slaughter of the Syrian people and pursue a transition to democracy in Syria," the State Department said.

    The climb went great it could of not gone better. Put in high camp and left for summit at midnight so client could see sunrise, he has leukemia so it was a great moment. We stood behind him so he had the feeling of solitude its a good thing when you can bring a good thing into a persons life that they will remember in this life and after passing. But every thing went 100%!! But what mountain was it?
