US suspects chemical weapons in Syria


US Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel has reported that US intelligence believes “with some degree of varying confidence” that chemical weapons had been used in Syria.

He told reporters that intelligence suggests the gas sarin had been used “on a small scale” against rebels who are attempting to overthrow Bashar al-Assad’s government.

Recent reports from Reuters suggest the intelligence is based partially on physiological samples. However, the White House say the current assessment is not enough and that more credible, corroborated facts are needed.
