France says it is very worried about a US attack in Syrian territory and has called for restraint and the "strict respect" of nations' territorial integrity. The statement Monday from French President Nicolas Sarkozy's office called for "light to be shed" on Sunday's cross-border raid, which the Syrian government says killed eight people. The statement says France "deplores the loss of Syrian civilians." It says Sarkozy has sent his condolence to the victims' friends and families. A US military official in Washington has confirmed that special forces had conducted a raid in Syria. The official says it targeted the network of al-Qaida-linked foreign fighters moving through Syria into Iraq.
