US Secretary of State John Kerry warns over Syria inaction

A Senate panel has approved the use of military force in Syria, in response to an alleged chemical weapons attack.

In a 10-7 vote, the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations moved the measure to a full Senate vote, expected next week.

US Secretary of State John Kerry told the committee that the risks of not acting over Syria outweighed the risks of taking action.
