EU Syria arms ban to end

Video from a social media website purports to show fighting in the Syrian town of Qusair. It's not been independently verified by Reuters. Hundreds of kilometres away in Brussels European Union foreign ministers tried and failed to reach agreement to extend a Syrian arms ban.

They've argued for months that the EU should approve arms deliveries to those fighting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

That resolution amounted to the other EU foreign ministers giving way to avoid the collapse of all EU sanctions against Syria. Those who wanted to keep the arms embargo were philosophical. (SOUNDBITE)(English) AUSTRIAN FOREIGN MINISTER MIC
