US, France, Britain launch new UN bid for Syria chemical weapons probe

United Nations (United States) (AFP) – The United States, France and Britain on Saturday launched a new bid at the UN Security Council to investigate chemical weapons attacks in Syria, just hours after firing military strikes against Syrian targets.

The three allies circulated a joint draft resolution that also calls for unimpeded deliveries of humanitarian aid in Syria and demands that Syria engage in UN-led peace talks, according to the text obtained by AFP.
