PARIS- France said on Sunday that it was doing what it could to secure a UN response to increasingly brutal repression in Syria.

"France is continuing its efforts with its partners in the international community to see that the United Nations Security Council takes responsibility and speaks out without delay on the Syrian crisis and regional consequences," a statement issued by the French foreign ministry said.

Syrian tanks and helicopters stormed Jisr al-Shughour on Sunday, according to residents, and state television reported heavy clashes between army troops and gunmen opposed to President Bashar Assad.
