Lib Dems: Syria 'very different' from Iraq

The civil war in Syria is "a very different situation" to the invasion of Iraq a decade ago, the Lib Dem foreign affairs spokesperson has told Daybreak.

Martin Horwood recognised "people are very conscious of what happened 10 years ago" but felt there had "undoubtedly" been a breach of international law.

"We were looking for weapons of mass destruction 10 years ago that turned out not exist at all", he added. "We know in this case that chemical weapons certainly do exist."
