The UN Security Council gathered in New York to weigh in on the alleged chemical attack in the Syrian city of Douma. It is expected to vote on the rival US and Russian draft resolutions, calling for an investigation.
Russia and the US have separately requested a vote on their draft resolutions on Douma. The alleged attack was reported on Saturday by anti-government groups, which claimed that the Syrian Army dropped a chlorine-filled munition on the area, affecting dozens of civilians. However, no solid facts on the purported incident have emerged yet.
