British and French foreign ministers say they are heading to New York to press for a United Nations resolution aimed at halting Syria's violent crackdown.

Officials hope Qatari Prime Minister Hamad bin Jassim and Arab League officials can persuade Russia and China to back a U.N. Security Council resolution.

Russia says it won't support any resolution which could enable foreign military intervention. The BBC's Richard Galpin reports on Russia's relationship with Syria.
