US leaves UN vote in protest

China and Russia have vetoed a UN Security Council resolution condemning Syria over its crackdown on anti-government protesters.

The US envoy to the UN, Susan Rice, said Washington was "outraged" by the vote.

She later walked out in protest when Syria's envoy to the UN, Bashar Jaafari, said the US was using its veto power to protect Israel.
