Assad: I Will Not Leave Syria

Syrian President Bashar al Assad tells Russian TV he will "live and die in Syria".

In an interview on Russia Today, he said he did not see the West moving towards military intervention in his country and warned of the "unbearable cost" of such action.

Earlier this week, David Cameron suggested that Assad could be allowed safe passage out of the country if it would guarantee an end to the nation's civil war.
