French polls 'won't deter Hollande'

France's President Francois Hollande has said he is considering military action against Syria following alleged chemical weapons attacks.

Along with the US President, Hollande has accused Syria of using chemical weapons near Damascus on 21 August.

France is seen as the main US ally - since the UK vote against military action - but an opinion poll suggested that 64% opposed the use of force.
