FCO has 'limited but persuasive' info on Syria chemicals

The Foreign Office has said it has "limited but persuasive" information showing the use of chemical weapons within Syria.

We have limited but persuasive information from various sources showing chemical weapon use in Syria, including sarin. This is extremely concerning. Use of chemical weapons is a war crime.

– Foreign Office spokesman

The FCO called on Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to cooperate with international bodies to prove he had not sanctioned the use of such weapons.
