French PM: Syrian embassy attacks go beyond limits

French Prime Minister Francois Fillon says attacks by supporters of Syrian President Bashar Assad on the French and United States embassies in Damascus show that "each passing day makes it more and more difficult" for the authoritarian leader to remain in power.
Speaking Tuesday on Europe-1 radio, Fillon said that with the previous two days' embassy attacks, "Assad has gone beyond all boundaries.
The incidents "show this regime is on a slippery slope," Fillon added.
He urged the United Nations Security Council to take action, saying the "silence on Syria has become untenable."
Hundreds of Syrian government supporters smashed windows at the U.S. embassy on Monday, while guards at the French Embassy fired in the air to ward off others.
