Syria crisis: Nato approves Patriots for Turkey

Nato has approved the deployment of Patriot anti-missile batteries along Turkey's border with Syria.

The long-expected move emerged from a meeting of Nato foreign ministers in Brussels, and amid growing fears that Syria could use chemical weapons.

Nato's Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said "The patriot missiles have been deployed, making it necessary for any potential aggressor to think twice before attacking Turkey".
