UK vote against military action in Syria

Published:Thursday | August 29, 2013 | 5:15 PM

British MPs have voted to reject possible military action against the Assad regime in Syria to deter the use of chemical weapons.

A government motion was defeated 285 to 272, a majority of 13 votes.

Prime Minster David Cameron said it was clear Parliament does not want action and the government will act accordingly.

It effectively rules out British involvement in any US-led strikes against the Assad regime.
