    THE US should bomb the Syrian army to stop attacks on cities and carve out "safe havens" for rebel fighters, Senator John McCain said.

    The Republican candidate for the presidency in 2008 became the first senior figure in US politics to call publicly for military intervention in Syria.

    Mr McCain told the Senate that America must secure the downfall of President Bashar al-Assad. "Providing military assistance to the Free Syrian Army and other opposition groups is necessary, but at this late hour, that alone will not be sufficient to stop the slaughter and save innocent lives. The only realistic way to do so is with foreign air power," he said.
