Republicans 2012: National security focus at TV debate
The eight Republican US presidential hopefuls have taken part in a foreign policy and national security debate hosted by CNN in Washington.
The likelihood of almost $1tn of defence and domestic spending cuts, now in prospect after Congress' failure to reach a deficit deal, was roundly criticised by most candidates, including former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and Texas Governor Rick Perry.
