Syria's Assad is a wretched tyrant, says UK PM Cameron
Cameron told lawmakers in the House of Commons today that both were offering backing to Syrian President Bashar Assad.
He described Assad as a "wretched tyrant who is killing so many of his own people."
Thousands have been killed in Syria's crackdown on the 10-month-old uprising, and Cameron has pledged to press for tougher international sanctions despite opposition from Russia and China.
He says there is "growing evidence that Iran is providing a huge amount of support" to Syria's ruling regime.
Cameron is seeking a United Nations Security Council resolution condemning the violence.
