Evidence of sarin in Syria, US says

NOTHING PROVEN:The US secretary of state said sarin gas, a chemical weapon, may have been used in Syria, but the White House said facts had to be corroborated

US officials had been disparaging on Wednesday about the evidence for the use of chemical weapons. Their UK counterparts had insisted that the intelligence agencies of both countries shared the same analysis of the evidence, but that it had taken longer for it to filter through to official pronouncements from Washington.

“There was just a longer lag in the US, but as far as I know we are absolutely on the same page on this,” a British official said.
