Russia says no trace of chemical attack in Syria

Russia is reiterating that its officers who inspected the town of Douma outside the Syrian capital have found no evidence to support claims that a chemical attack happened there.


Lt. Gen. Viktor Poznikhir of the Russian military's General Staff says ground samples from Douma showed no trace of chemical agents. He says doctors at a local hospital told the Russians they haven't treated any victims of purported attacks.


He also noted that local residents told Russian officers they were unaware of any burials of victims of a purported chemical attack.
