UNITED NATIONS - The five permanent UN Security Council members will meet again on Thursday to discuss an alleged chemical weapons attack in Syria last week as Western powers consider possible military action against the Syrian government, UN diplomats said.

The meeting will take place at 2:30 p.m. (1830 GMT), the diplomats said on condition of anonymity. One envoy said the Russians had requested the meeting.
