The calls for the international community to act over the alleged chemical attack in Syria are getting louder.
Syria's president believes his country is caught up in a much larger conflict than its own civil war. He warned that "things are going to be out of control" if superpowers engage in direct conflict.
The Organization for the Prevention of Chemical Weapons has said samples show a high probability that chlorine gas was used in an attack in Syria. It did not say who had used the banned weapons.
Russia called an emergency Security Council meeting to file a motion condemning the missile attack on Syria. Only two other countries backed its efforts.
Security Council member states have failed to agree on a plan to probe a suspected chemical weapons attack in Syria. The US has threatened a "forceful" response after dozens of civilians were killed in rebel-held Douma.
