US, Allies Mull Response to Syria’s Gas Attack

French President Emmanuel Macron said he has proof that Assad’s forces used chlorine in last week’s attack on Douma, a suburb of the capital, Damascus. U.S. officials say they believe the banned substance was used, but are looking for definitive evidence. VOA’s Zlatica Hoke has more.
