France: UK vote doesn't thwart plans to hit Syria

PARIS (AP) - French President Francois Hollande says his country can go ahead with plans to strike Syria for allegedly using chemical weapons despite the British parliament's failure to endorse military action.

"The chemical massacre of Damascus cannot and must not remain unpunished," Hollande said in an interview with the newspaper Le Monde, published on Friday.

The French president reiterated that France wants a "proportional and firm action" but said when asked about the type of intervention that "all options are on the table."
