US warns Syria against 'chemical attack'

The US says it has identified potential preparations for another chemical weapons attack in Syria, and issued a stark warning to the Syrian government.

The White House said the activities are similar to those made before a suspected chemical attack in April.

Dozens died in that attack and prompted President Donald Trump to carry out a strike against a Syrian air base.

The US statement warned President Bashar al-Assad of “a heavy price” if another attack occurs.
