PARIS - France condemned Syria on Tuesday and said the United Nations Security Council's failure to speak out against the violent repression of pro-reform protests there was becoming "unbearable."

Prime Minister Francois Fillon said China and Russia were blocking adoption of a UN resolution and that this was not acceptable.

"President (Bashar) Assad has gone way beyond the limit. The UN Security Council's silence on Syria is becoming unbearable," Fillon said in an interview on Europe 1 radio.
