PARIS - A narrow majority of French people would back a UN-authorized military intervention in Syria, a poll showed on Friday, a higher percentage than those who had supported the NATO mission that helped oust Libya's Muammar Gaddafi.

Syrian President Bashar Assad, bolstered by Russian support, is ignoring Western and Arab demands that he end his violent response to 11 months of protests against his rule.

In a survey of 1,200 French people carried out by pollster IFOP for right-leaning information website Atlantico, 51 percent said they would support U.N.-backed military action in Syria.

Fifty-nine percent of opposition Socialist sympathizers would back the initiative, while 56 percent of supporters of President Nicolas Sarkozy's UMP ruling were in favor.
