Topic: Obama: U.S. helping investigate reports of chlorine in bombs in Syria


President Barack Obama said on Thursday if reports of chlorine gas attacks in Syria were confirmed, the United States would work with the international community to put a stop to them. At a news conference after his Camp David summit with Gulf allies, Obama said he has seen reports about the use of chlorine in bombs that have the effect of chemical weapons. "And so we're working with the international community to investigate that," he said at the presidential retreat in Maryland. While chlorine itself is not listed as a chemical weapon, its use in such attacks may be prohibited, Obama said.
