Video: Candidates clash over foreign policy at final Presidential debate - watch the highlights


Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama clashed last night over foreign policy in the final debate of the US elections.

Mr Romney said 'we can't kill our way out of this mess' and proposed putting in place a comprehensive and robust strategy to help the Islamic world to reject radical violent extremism.

However, President Obama criticised Mr. Romney's strategy saying that it would not keep Americans safe and was 'all over the map'.
