France condemns Syria, says UN silence unbearable

Prime Minister Francois Fillon said China and Russia were blocking adoption of a UN resolution and that this was not acceptable.
"President (Bashar) Assad has gone way beyond the limit. The UN Security Council's silence on Syria is becoming unbearable," Fillon said in an interview on Europe 1 radio.
