Washington is concerned that the deteriorating situation in Syria could allow Hezbollah in Lebanon to obtain sophisticated weaponry from the Syrian regime, US Defense Secretary Leon Panetta told AFP on Friday.

"The chaos in Syria has obviously created an environment where the possibility of these weapons, you know, going across the border and falling into the hands of Hezbollah has become a greater concern," Panetta stated.
