French politicians have been calling for President Francois Hollande to put the possible intervention in Syria to a vote, as in the US and Britain.
French newspaper Le Monde reports that the main opposition UMP party has called for such a vote to take place, whilst MEP Arnaud Danjean told France 24:
I think there should be a vote of Parliament. We see the skepticism of the people, and we see the skepticism of our allies.
