Trump warns Russia over Syrian crisis
Thursday, 12 April 2018 - 10:15
The US says "all options are on the table" in response to a suspected chemical weapons attack in Syria, as Western leaders continue to weigh up military action.
White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders told reporters that no final decision had been taken on military strikes.
But she said the US holds Russia and Syria responsible for the incident.
"We haven't laid out any specific actions we plan to take," she added.
The comments appear to row back on President Donald Trump's earlier warning to Russia that it should "get ready" for missile strikes in Syria.
"Get ready Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and 'smart!'" Mr Trump said in an early morning tweet on Wednesday.
He also called the Syrian leader a "gas killing animal".
