WASHINGTON - US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Thursday Washington believed Syrian President Bashar Assad's government was responsible for more than 2,000 deaths in its crackdown on peaceful protests.

Clinton repeated that the United States believed Assad has lost legitimacy in Syria, and said the US and its allies were working on strategies to apply more pressure beyond new sanctions announced on Thursday.
