DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) — Syria's foreign minister said Tuesday his country would defend itself using "all means available" in case of a U.S. strike, denying categorically his government was behind an alleged chemical weapons attack near Damascus and challenging Washington to present proof backing up its accusations.

Walid al-Moallem also said a second trip by United Nations experts to the site of last week's purported chemical weapons attack has been delayed because of disputes between rebel groups.
