UN Calls for 'Clarification' of Alleged Chemical Attack in Syria


The United Nations Security Council said Wednesday that it was necessary to “clarify” an alleged chemical weapons attack in the suburbs of Damascus, which rebels claimed killed more than 1,000 people.

The Council, however, stopped short of demanding a probe by UN investigators currently in Syria, according to Reuters.
