EU leaders discuss Syria arms ban
European Union foreign ministers are discussing British and French calls for an easing of sanctions against Syria so weapons can be supplied to the rebels.
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 May 31.
Fierce clashes are reported in a Syrian border town and more allegations have emerged of chemical weapons being used.
