GENEVA (WKOW) – The United Nations special envoy to Syria says evidence does suggest that some kind of chemical "substance: was used in an attack that killed hundreds of people.
U.N. officials say any military strike on Syria would have to be approved by the U.N. Security Council.
U.N. inspectors are back at the site of the suspected poison gas attack near Damascus that happened on August 21 as the U.S. and other western countries consider military action against Syrian President Bashar Assad.
The U.N.'s special envoy to Syria Lakhdar Brahimi says that "it does seem like some kind of substance was used" that killed hundreds of people, but "international law says that any U.S. led military action must be taken after" agreement in the 15-nation Security Council.
Assad claims his government did not carry out the attack, but the Obama administration says there is "undeniable" evidence it was responsible.
