PARIS (AP) — The French government is preparing to publicly release details from its intelligence services about a suspected chemical weapons attack in Syria.
President Francois Hollande has backed a call from U.S. President Barack Obama for a military strike against Syrian President Bashar Assad's government in retaliation for an alleged chemical weapons attack near Damascus on Aug. 21.
Hollande's prime minister, Jean-Marc Ayrault, was hosting lawmakers, his defense and foreign ministers, and intelligence and security officials Monday to discuss Syria. French officials said a summary of the French intelligence will be released on government Web sites after the meeting.
France's parliament is to debate Syria on Wednesday, but no vote is scheduled. The French constitution doesn't require such a vote for Hollande to be able to authorize military action.
