White House in talks with Pentagon over military options on Syria

President Trump says "something should happen" with Syria's Bashar al Assad, amid growing condemnation over an alleged gas attack.

The Pentagon is in detailed discussions with the White House about military options on Syria, according to a US official.

This could include grounding aircraft used by Syrian President Bashar al Assad's forces, the official cited by the Reuters news agency added, speaking on condition of anonymity.

Such options would also include using cruise missiles, allowing the US to strike targets without putting piloted aircraft in the skies above Syria.

The White House has said Donald Trump has talked to several leaders about setting up safe zones in the country.
