US, France and UK Discuss Gas Attack Response

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) - Officials of the Trump administration have been discussing with officials of France and Britain a possible joint military response to Syria's alleged poison gas attack.
  
U.S. officials tell The Associated Press that the allies have weighed launching a military strike as early as the end of this week.
  
The White House says President Donald Trump has decided not to attend a summit in South America this week to remain in the U.S. to manage the crisis. In the past Trump has vowed to stand up to Syrian President Bashar Assad.
  
Trump has suggested that he has little doubt that Syrian government forces are to blame for what he says was a chemical attack, but neither he nor other administration officials have produced hard evidence. Syria denies the accusation.
