European stock close

European stocks dropped to the lowest level in six weeks as concern grew that the U.S. will take military action against Syria.

The Stoxx Europe 600 Index lost 0.4 percent to 297.88 at 4:30 p.m. in London, its lowest level since July 17. The gauge fell as much as 1.1 percent in intraday trading. It has still advanced 8.1 percent since this year’s low on June 24 as the European Central Bank pledged to keep interest rates low. The Stoxx 600 slid 1.8 percent yesterday after U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said the U.S. will hold Syria accountable for using chemical weapons against its own people. The attack near Damascus last week killed as many as 1,300 people, according to opposition groups.

In the U.K., Bank of England Governor Mark Carney said the central bank is prepared to boost stimulus if the U.K.’s economic recovery is hampered by investors’ expectations of high interest rates.
