US President Barack Obama says he is to seek Congressional authorisation for military operations against Syria.

He says he supports the principle of acting in Syria, and Congress will debate and vote on the matter. Congress reconvenes on 9 September.

The US says its intelligence reports indicate the Syrian government carried out chemical weapons attacks on 21 August in which 1,429 people died.

The Syrian government denies it was behind the attacks and blames rebels.

UN inspectors have now left Syria with samples from site visits, which will go to laboratories in Europe for testing.
