Obama calls alleged Syrian workplace violence chemical attack a ‘grave concern’

U.S. President Barack Obama says a possible chemical weapons attack in Syria this week is a “big event of grave concern” that has hastened the timeframe for determining a U.S. response.

However, Obama said the notion that the U.S. alone can end Syria’s bloody civil war is “overstated” and made clear he would seek international support before taking large-scale action.
