US considers ‘limited act’ in Syria

31 Aug

ImagePresident Barack Obama has said the US is considering a “limited narrow act” in response to the alleged use of chemical weapons by the Syrian army.

Mr Obama stressed that no “final decision” had been made, but ruled out putting American “boots on the ground”.

Citing a US intelligence assessment, Secretary of State John Kerry accused Syria of using chemical weapons to kill 1,429 people, including 426 children.

Syria said the US claim was “full of lies”, blaming rebels for the attack.
