France's Juppe accuses Syria of 'massacres'
French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe on Thursday accused the Syrian government of "massacring" its civilians who are seeking more freedom and democracy.
"The attitude of Syria is unacceptable," he said.
"One cannot continue massacring the civilian population under the pretext that this population aspires to have more freedom and democracy," Juppe told AFP on the sideline of an international meeting on Libya in Abu Dhabi.
