European stock close

European stocks slid the most in nine weeks after U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said the Obama administration will hold Syria accountable for using chemical weapons against its own people.

The Stoxx 600 slid 1.6 percent to 299.51 at 4:30 p.m. in London. The equity benchmark has still rallied 8.6 percent from this year’s low on June 24 as the European Central Bank said that interest rates will remain low for an extended period. The Stoxx 600 fell yesterday after Silvio Berlusconi’s People of Liberty party threatened to withdraw its support from Italy’s coalition government if the country’s Senate votes to remove the billionaire former prime minister. The senators will discuss Berlusconi’s case from Sept. 9.

The Federal Reserve holds its next meeting on Sept. 17-18. The central bank will decide to reduce its $85 billion of monthly asset purchases at the meeting, according to the median estimate of economists surveyed by Bloomberg on Aug. 9-13. Secretary of State Kerry denounced an attack on a suburb of Damascus last week, saying it required a response against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s regime.
