Kerry: 'Raw Data' Suggests Syria Used Chlorine Gas

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said on Thursday that he has seen “raw data” indicating that the Syrian government has used chlorine gas as a chemical weapon in a “number of instances” in recent months, The Washington Post reports.

“There will be consequences” if evidence of new chemical use is confirmed, Kerry said during a visit to London, but “we’re not going to pin ourselves down to a precise date, time, manner of action.”
