NATO: Evidence points to use of chemical weapons by Syria

NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said on Wednesday information from a variety of sources pointed to President Bashar Assad's forces being responsible for the use of chemical weapons in Syria.


Speaking after a meeting of NATO ambassadors in Brussels, Rasmussen said any use of such weapons was "unacceptable and cannot go unanswered", although he did not suggest any response. "This is a clear breach of long-standing international norms and practice... Those responsible must be held accountable," he said in a statement. (Reuters)
