Britain, US call for tougher stance on Syria

The US and Britain called for a tougher stance over Syria's bloody crackdown on protesters Thursday, demanding tough new international sanctions on President Bashar Assad and his regime. In a round of talks on the sidelines of a Paris summit on Libya, the US, Britain and France discussed plans to escalate international action aimed at halting violence which the United Nations estimates has seen 2,200 people killed since mid-March.


"President Assad's brutality against unarmed citizens has outraged the region, the world and most importantly the Syrian people themselves," US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton told reporters in Paris. (AP)
