West must stop ‘pulverisation’ of Aleppo – Boris Johnson

Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson has said the West must consider new military options against Syrian forces to stop Aleppo being “pulverised”. The rebel-held east of the city is under renewed bombardment after a ceasefire deal broke down.

Mr Johnson said a new set of “kinetic” options would be considered at a UK meeting of foreign ministers on Sunday. Many people had changed their minds since 2013, when MPs blocked military action against Assad’s forces, he said.

Mr Johnson has summoned a meeting of foreign ministers, including US Secretary of State John Kerry, as well as ministers from France and Germany on Sunday, to consider a new way forward in Syria and Iraq.(BBC,2016)
