UNITED NATIONS - There is "no viable path forward" in the UN Security Council when it comes to responding to the Aug. 21 chemical attack in Syria that killed hundreds because Russia is holding the council hostage, the US envoy to the United Nations said on Thursday.

US Ambassador Samantha Power also told reporters that the United States has been briefing UN member states on its intelligence about the Aug. 21 chemical weapon attack, which Washington blames on forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar Assad. The United States says over 1,400 people, many of them children, died in that attack.
