The European Union has decided to impose an arms embargo on Syria, Sky News reported on Monday.

The move came as Syrian President Bashar Assad continued a violent crackdown on anti-regime protesters in which human rights groups claim more than 800 have died over the past seven weeks.

The EU arms embargo received a preliminary green light at the end of last month.
