Call for no-bombing zone in Syria to end Assad killings

A Labour MP has called on the US and French military to enforce a no-bombing zone across Syria to stop President Bashar Assad "raining down barrel bombs on innocent civilians".

Jo Cox told ITV News Political Correspondent Libby Wiener the strategy to stop Assad - who she said was responsible for 75% of civilian deaths in Syria - did not require British troops on the ground.

She explained how the no-bombing zone could be achieved and why it would "force (Assad) to the negotiating table".
