The leaders of Saudi Arabia and France have both said that they could take part in military action in Syria after a suspected chemical attack killed at least 60 people in the eastern Ghouta region over the weekend.
The French president also expressed concern for the humanitarian situation in Yemen, which has been under bombardment by a Saudi Arabia-led coalition for the past three years.
