UK should back Syria airstrike–Hollande

French President Hollande has thanked UK for helping his country to accelerate the airstrike in Syria. He has also hoped the MPs would back David Cameron’s case for military action.

The PM has said there is a “compelling case” for air strikes against so-called Islamic State targets in Syria.

But senior Labour MPs have been trying to defuse a party row over the issue.

Mr Hollande, who was speaking at the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in Malta, said the Paris attacks showed “man is the worst enemy of man”.

“I do hope that the House of Commons will be able to meet the request of Prime Minister Cameron,” he added.
