Kerry to make statement on Syria at 1800 GMT

US Secretary of State John Kerry will make a statement on Syria at 2 pm (1800 GMT), the State Department said on Monday, as the United States weighs options to respond to reports of a chemical weapons attack on civilians near Damascus.

 

Kerry said in a round of phone calls to his foreign counterparts on Sunday that there was "very little doubt" the Syrian government had gassed its own citizens. (Reuters)
