United Nations inspectors spent several hours Monday in a Damascus suburb, to meet with victims of suspected chemical weapon attacks before returning to their hotel in the capital. Meanwhile, the international community is weighing options for a possible response to the attacks that activists say were carried out by the Syrian government. Rebels and activists say government forces used chemical weapons that killed hundreds of people in several neighborhoods last week. The government denies the allegations and has accused the rebels of using such weapons. VOA's Jeff Custer reports.
