Source: BBC

Republican presidential front-runners Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney took aim at President Barack Obama, not each other, in their final TV debate before the first nominating event in Iowa.

Mr Romney lambasted President Obama for trying to "appease or accommodate the tyrants of the world", criticising his approach to retrieving a drone which recently went down in Iran.

He chose not to take the bait when the moderator asked whether he would like to respond to a previous challenge by Mr Gingrich that the former governor of Massachusetts should give back the millions he earned bankrupting companies while working at a private equity group.
