A US Senate panel has approved the use of military force in Syria, in response to an alleged chemical weapons attack.
The Committee on Foreign Relations moved the measure to a full Senate vote, expected next week.
The proposal allows the use of force in Syria for 60 days with the possibility to extend it for 30 days.
It prevents the use of US troops on the ground.
Despite Wednesday’s vote, the bill’s ultimate fate in the wider Senate is unclear. -BBC News
