Across the Atlantic, the Obama administration faces a crucial test vote set for Wednesday in the senate. Barack Obama has scheduled a number of TV addresses in an attempt to win over public support at home. And graphic and distressing video has been shown to senators – and given to American TV – that has supposedly been verified by US authorities.
“This is not something reported in the news that you can disregard. Those videos make it clear to people that these are real human beings, real children,” said Mr Kerry.
But Syria’s President Bashar Assad has also given a TV interview, aired on a US network tomorrow, warning of retaliation if he is attacked and saying there’s no evidence he used Sarin gas.
