LONDON - Syrian President Bashar Assad is losing legitimacy and should reform or quit, British Foreign Secretary William Hague said on Tuesday in the toughest language Britain has used during 12 weeks of protests in Syria.

"President Assad is losing legitimacy and should reform or step aside," Hague told parliament.

He said Britain was exploring with its European Union partners the potential for further sanctions against the Syrian government if the violence continued.
