PARIS - France called on the Syrian government to immediately halt attacks on Homs and allow safe access to provide medical support to victims in the city after two journalists were killed on Wednesday.

"I ask the Syrian government to stop immediately the attacks and respect its humanitarian obligations," Foreign Minister Alain Juppe said in a statement. "I have asked our embassy in Damascus to demand from Syrian authorities a securitized passage with medical help to be given to victims with the support of the International Red Cross," he said.Juppe added that he had summoned Syria's ambassador to condemn the unacceptable behavior of the Syrian government.

"France is more determined than ever to end the savage repression that the Syrian people are experiencing every day," he said.
