Turkey asks NATO for missile defense against Syria

NATO said on Wednesday it would consider a Turkish request to deploy Patriot missiles on its territory to help it defend itself against any Syrian attacks.

"Ambassadors will have an initial informal discussion on the Turkish request today," a NATO official said. Turkey said the NATO ambassadors would meet shortly, while the head of NATO said the alliance would discuss the request "without delay".
