WASHINGTON — CNN aired graphic videos of victims Saturday that it said were shown to select US lawmakers as part of a push to shore up support for a strike on Syria.

The broadcaster said the 13 videos were shown Thursday to members of the Senate Intelligence Committee who were told they depict victims of an August 21 chemical weapons attack in the war-torn country.

Excerpts depict convulsing children and men sprawled on the floor apparently vomiting and foaming at the mouth.
