In Syria, the Assad regime and rebel forces are both accusing each other of using chemical weapons. Syrian state media claimed yesterday that opposition forces launched a chemical attack in Aleppo province, killing at least two dozen people and injuring more than 100. Rebels deny that charge and accuse the government forces of shelling a town near Damascus with chemical rockets.
The White House is continuing to keep a close eye on the situation there. Chief of Staff Denis Mcdonough told CNN's Jake Tapper that the president takes the reports, quote "very seriously." The statement now raises questions whether that means the United States would take some kind of military action. Chris Lawrence is live at the Pentagon with the latest on this developing story.
