LONDON (AP) — British Prime Minister David Cameron says British scientists have found new evidence that poison gas was used last month in a suburb outside the Syrian capital of Damascus.
In an interview with the BBC on Thursday, Cameron said that samples from Syria had been examined by experts at England's Porton Down Laboratory.
Cameron spoke from St. Petersburg, where world leaders have gathered for a summit and the Syrian government's alleged use of chemical weapons is expected to be high on the agenda.
A spokesman for Cameron's office said the samples consisted of clothing from one of the reported victims and soil taken from the area. He declined to comment on how or when the evidence made its way to Britain, citing security concerns.
