LONDON - British Prime Minister David Cameron's government on Thursday accused the Labor party of "giving succour" to Syrian President Bashar Assad, after the opposition party made clear it would not support an imminent military strike against Syria.

In a move that deepened a widening split that threatens to complicate Cameron's efforts to secure bipartisan backing for military action, the defence secretary and Cameron's head of communications leveled the charge at Labour leader Ed Miliband.

"I am disappointed with Ed Miliband's behaviour frankly," British Defense Secretary Philip Hammond told Channel 4 TV news.

"Anything that stops us from giving a clear, united view of the British parliament tonight will give some succour to the (Assad) regime."
