UK to Give Extra £5m to Rebels

Foreign Secretary William Hague says the UK’s commitment of an extra £5m in non-lethal equipment to the Free Syrian Army is “the right thing to do”.

The extra practical support for the opposition FSA will include more radio and satellite equipment, as well as portable power generators.

However, the assistance will not include any weapons.

Speaking at a press conference, Mr Hague said the £5m was “in addition to, and separate from, our humanitarian assistance”.
