French FM raises prospect of military action in Syria as deaths mount
An explosion ripped through a building in Syria’s central city of Hama on Wednesday, killing at least 54 people and wounding dozens more, Local Coordinating Committees (LCC) in Syria said, in a bloody violation of a shaky ceasefire in the country.
At least 100 people were killed across the country on Wednesday, Al Arabiya reported, citing the LCC.
Footage on YouTube of the blast in Hama showed a crowd of men pulling the bloodied body of a young girl from the rubble, shouting “God is great.”
France has said it wants the U.N. Security Council to consider allowing military action in Syria if an international peace plan fails to stop the violence under Assad’s regime, the French foreign minister stated on Wednesday.
