VILNIUS - British Foreign Minister William Hague said the killing of top Syrian defense and security officials in a bomb attack on Wednesday showed there was a need for strong action by the United Nations to end the conflict.

"All such events increase the arguments for a strong and decisive resolution from the United Nations," Hague said during an official visit to Lithuania.

"I think it is clear that situation is deteriorating rapidly."
