Syria Anniversary: EU Pressed On Arms Embargo

Britain and France will press the EU today to lift an arms embargo against Syria and unblock military aid to rebels on the second anniversary of the uprising.

David Cameron and French president Francois Hollande will address a summit in Brussels.

They will say they are both anxious to be freed up to despatch lethal weaponry if necessary to rebalance the odds in the continuing bloody war.
