New report pins chemical attack on Assad

Intelligence agencies are convinced beyond reasonable doubt that Syrian president's regime carried out chemical attack.

    Western intelligence agencies say they are convinced beyond reasonable doubt that President Bashar al-Assad's government carried out the worst chemical weapons attack for decades.

    A new report on the gas attack in Syria last month says the amount of toxic material used was bigger than first thought.

    Researchers in the US say a study of photos from the incident seem to show rockets carried fifty times more nerve agent.

    Al Jazeera's James Bays reports from Massachusetts.
