Syria conflict: EU struggles over arms embargo

EU foreign ministers are struggling to reach agreement over UK and French calls to ease sanctions so Syria rebels can be supplied with arms.

France and the UK argue that the move would increase pressure on Damascus for a political solution.

However, several EU states are totally opposed to ending the arms embargo, which expires on 31 May.

Sources say talks are continuing to find some form of compromise but Austria, which opposes the move, accused the UK of intransigence.
