CAIRO, Egypt (AP) - Arab League chief Nabil el-Araby says a key international conference aimed at ending Syria's civil war will be held in Geneva on Nov. 23 and 24.
    
El-Araby made the announcement at a news conference Sunday in the Egyptian capital, Cairo, after talks with the Arab League-U.N. envoy to Syria, Lakhdar Brahimi.
    
The Geneva conference is an attempt to get sides to agree on a transitional government in Syria based on a plan adopted in that city in June 2012.
    
Syria's conflict, now into its third year, has left over 100,000 dead.
