The Arab League has called upon the United Nations and the international community to take steps against Syria over its recent alleged gas attack.

At a meeting of foreign ministers in Cairo, the League again accused the Syrian government of being behind the alleged chemical attack in Damascus.

They urged the UN and international community to "take the deterrent and necessary measures against the culprits of this crime that the Syrian regime bears responsibility for."

"Firstly, greatly condemning this horrific crime that has been committed by the use of chemical weapons, which are globally forbidden," Arab League senior official Nassif Hitti said, as cited by international media.

"Secondly, putting full responsibility of such horrendous attacks on the Syrian regime, and demanding the punishment and prosecution of all those involved in such a crime at international tribunals, to be tried similarly to those convicted of war crimes."
