SOFIA - US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Sunday the veto by Russia and China of a UN resolution that would have urged the Syrian president to give up power was a "travesty".

Speaking to reporters in Sofia, Clinton said: "What happened yesterday at the United Nations was a travesty."

"We will work with the friends of a democratic Syria around the world to support the opposition's peaceful, political plans for change," Clinton said in Sofia.
