WASHINGTON - The White House strongly denounced what it called the Syrian government's "outrageous use of violence" on Friday and voiced support for a European-drafted proposed UN Security Council resolution condemning the crackdown and calling for it to be halted.

"The Syrian government is leading Syria on a dangerous path," the White House said in a statement.
