Congress to be shown CIA-approved Damascus video

Members of US Congress are to be shown a 13-minute video compilation of CIA-verified footage showing the victims of a chemical attack on eastern Damascas.

Senate Intelligence Committee chairwoman Dianne Feinstein said her committee was shown the "grim and ghoulish" video yesterday.
