Hollande: Cannot 'allow Assad regime to massacre its own people'
Military intervention, to end the crisis in Syria, cannot be ruled out, according to the new French President, Francois Hollande. He said it was not possible to allow the Assad regime to 'massacre it own people'.
Many countries, including the UK and USA, have announced they are expelling senior Syrian diplomats. The decision follows the killing of 108 people in the Houla region of Syria on Friday. The UN says that most of the victims of the attack were executed in their own homes, by President Assad's militias.
UN special envoy Kofi Annan said, after talks with President Bashar al-Assad, Syria was at a "tipping point".
