Britain and France renew call for Assad to go after Syria chemical attackBy Robin Emmott and Gabriela Baczynska BRUSSELS (Reuters) – Britain and France on Wednesday renewed their call for Syria’s president Bashar al-Assad to leave office, after a suspected chemical attack by Damascus killed scores of people in a rebel-held area, eclipsing an international conference to promote peace in Syria. Foreign ministers Boris Johnson of Britain and Jean-Marc Ayrault of France spoke during the conference, which raised $ 6 billion in immediate aid and which the European Union convened in Brussels to shore up stalled peace talks between Assad and his rivals.
