UN Security Council meets on Syria strikes
The United States and other Western powers consider taking military action over Saturday's attack.
Moscow opposes any Western strike on its close ally Assad and has vetoed Security Council action on Syria 12 times since the conflict started.
April 10 - August 30, 2014: Syrian opposition and Kurdish forces controlled multiple towns that were hit by more than two dozen chlorine gas attacks that killed a handful of people and injured a few hundred people. His most recent warning on Twitter early Wednesday said Russian Federation threatened to shoot down US missiles fired at Syria.
Iran, the Assad regime's other key ally, called the USA -led strikes an "aggression" that was "a flagrant violation of global laws and a disregard for Syria's right of national sovereignty and territorial integrity", according to Iran's semi-official FARS News agency.
Defense Secretary Jim Mattis as well as Central Intelligence Agency director Mike Pompeo met at the White House on Wednesday to discuss options, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said.
Russian Federation vetoed a US -drafted resolution to create a new inquiry to ascertain blame for such attacks.

U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley told the Security Council that adopting the US-drafted resolution was the least that member nations could do.
British ambassador Karen Pierce said the United Kingdom opposed the resolution because an OPCW investigative team is already headed to Syria and the Russian text did not include a new body to determine accountability for chemical weapons attacks.
Any countries that carry out a strike on Syria over the chemical weapons attack could also defend their action under Article 51 of the UN Charter, which covers an individual or collective right to self-defense against armed attack. The Syrian government reportedly used an "incapacitating" chemical agent.
"I would once again ask you, once again beseech you, to refrain from the plans that you're now developing for Syria", said Nebenzia, as President Donald Trump warns Russian Federation to "get ready" for missile strikes aimed at Syria.
In a notice posted to Eurocontrol's website, EASA said: "Due to the possible launch of air strikes into Syria with air-to-ground and/or cruise missiles within the next 72 hours, and the possibility of intermittent disruption of radio navigation equipment, due consideration needs to be taken".
But he notably also said there was "no reason for this", reiterated his hope for talks with Putin to halt a new arms race, and blamed his domestic political opponents for poisoning ties.
Flight diverted after man holds out threat with pen
The Zhengzhou airport says it immediately activated emergency measures and that the airport is operating normally. Authorities have not yet released further information about the man's motives or what happened to him.
It was circulated ahead of an emergency Security Council meeting on the Douma attack.
Syria and its allies Russian Federation and Iran deny the attack and have called for an investigation by the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.
The State Department says it doesn't know what chemical was used, but says it is confident Syria was responsible.
Damascus agreed to hand over its chemical arsenal in 2013, narrowly avoiding American and French air strikes in retaliation for a suspected sarin attack.
Their evacuation restored Assad's control over eastern Ghouta, formerly the biggest rebel bastion near Damascus, and gave him his biggest battlefield victory since 2016, when he took back Aleppo.
