The EU is preparing to further toughen sanctions on Syria in a bid to crank up pressure on the country's regime. The decision came after Russia and China vetoed the latest draft UN resolution on Syria. Moscow and Beijing say the wording took sides in the Syrian conflict, as it solely blamed the government for violence, without mentioning armed extremist groups. In Syria, opposition leaders claim at least 50 people have been killed in a fresh wave of attacks by the army on the city of Homs. The government denies the assault, and amateur footage showing the alleged shelling cannot be verified. And as RT's Sara Firth reports, an absence of credibility in video evidence from Syria raises questions as to exactly what is happening in the country. John Laughland, political analyst from The Institute of Democracy and Cooperation, says Russia is another target of constant attacks on Syria made by the West.
