WASHINGTON - US Secretary of State John Kerry is expected to make a statement at 12:30 p.m. EDT (1630 GMT) on Friday about Syria, a US government source said.

The United States is deliberating about action to punish Syrian President Bashar Assad's government for an apparent poison gas attack on civilians. The momentum for a decisive strike slowed after a British parliamentary vote on Thursday against it.
