Sturgeon: Case for Syria airstrikes case 'not yet made'

SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon says she is open to persuasion but not yet convinced that the case for UK airstrikes in Syria has been made.

In an interview marking the first anniversary of her becoming Scottish first minister, she told the BBC's Glenn Campbell "certain tests" would have to be met before she would support such action.

These would include legality and whether they were part of a bigger strategy for combating so-called Islamic State extremists.
