Victims of a chemical weapons attack on the outskirts of Damascus last month were flown in secret from Syria to the United Kingdom to undergo tests, the Sunday Times reported.

According to the report in the British newspaper, the medical tests revealed traces of the deadly sarin gas in their bodies.

US President Barack Obama is trying to build international and domestic support for military action against the Syrian regime, which is widely believed to have carried out the attack.
