BERLIN - German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Francois Hollande agreed in a phone call there must be a reaction to the poison gas attack in Syria that violated human rights, Merkel's spokesman said in a statement on Thursday.

"They hope for a quick end to the UN's investigation mission and an immediate report to the UN Security Council so that it can fulfill its responsibility with regards to this monstrous crime," the statement read.

Just four weeks before elections in which Merkel hopes to win a third term, she faces a balancing act in how to respond to pictures of the chemical weapons attack, as German voters overwhelmingly oppose military action there.
