UNITED NATIONS - Britain, France, Germany and Portugal handed the UN Security Council a draft resolution on Wednesday condemning Syria's crackdown on protesters, despite the risk of a Russian veto.

The UN ambassadors of the four European Union countries told reporters they presented the draft at a council meeting at which the 15-nation body was briefed by a senior UN official on the unrest in Syria.
