Britain said it would propose a resolution at the United Nations on Wednesday authorizing action to protect civilians in Syria from chemical weapons.

Prime Minister David Cameron did not specify what that action would be or whether the resolution would explicitly lay out military intervention. But the British leader was scheduled to meet with his national security advisors Wednesday to discuss military options that could include airstrikes on Syrian defense assets.
