Syrian forces used chemical weapons, says White House

Syrian forces under President Bashar al-Assad have used chemical weapons "on a small scale" against rebel forces, the White House has said.

A senior aide to President Barack Obama said the US estimated 100-150 people had died in "multiple" attacks.

The BBC's David Willis said the White House said this constitutes a crossing of a '"red line" that Mr Obama had set for action.
