Hillary Clinton: 'Syria a nation brought to brink of chaos'

Syria is a nation on the brink of chaos, according to the US Secretary of State Hilary Clinton.

Speaking ahead of an international conference on the violence, which is being held in Tunisia on Friday, she said the Syrian regime was making war on its own people.

Referring to the recent veto by Russia and China of a UN Security Council resolution, she said, "the obstruction of a few countries cannot be allowed to stop the world community from coming to the aid of the Syrian people."
