McCain unhappy with Senate draft resolution on Syria

US Republican Senator John McCain has said he does not back the Senate panel draft resolution authorising use of force in Syria.

"There are a number of people who are unhappy," McCain told reporters on Capitol Hill.

The Senate Foreign Relations Committee draft was narrower than the request made by President Obama, and the panel, of which McCain is a member, may vote on it later today.

Senator McCain has been calling for US intervention in the civil war for many months now.
