    President Hollande has met the new leader of the opposition Syrian national coalition in Paris and reiterated French political and humanitarian support.

    But he did not go so far as to agree to Ahmad al-Jarba's request for military aid.

    Military pressure had to be kept up on the Syrian regime, the French president said, but that was up to the coalition and its army.
