Obama discusses Syria with Britain's Cameron, France's Hollande

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama discussed Syria in phone calls with British Prime Minister David Cameron and French President Francois Hollande on Friday, a senior administration official said.

The calls came as Obama seeks the broadest diplomatic support possible for a military strike to retaliate against a Syrian chemical weapons attack on August 21 that U.S. intelligence says killed 1,429 people.
