Hollande: Syrian opposition 'should form government'

French President Francois Hollande has urged Syrian opposition groups to form a provisional government.

He told a meeting of French ambassadors that such a government would be recognised by France "as soon as it is formed".

His comments follow allegations that government forces killed more than 300 people in an assault on the Damascus suburb of Darayya earlier this week.
