The word "sino"

I have noticed the word sino used in many articles. I sometimes use it (not alot), and I have always wondered how on earth does the word sino relate to anything Chinese? I suppose, the easy way to find out is to do a search in the dictionary... meaning from Oxford dictionary

combining form Chinese; Chinese : Sino-American. —ORIGIN from Latin Sinae, from Arabic.

Wikipedia did not help here.... it only redirected me to China!
