Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Muallem has said he rejects "utterly and completely" that Syrian government forces used chemical weapons.

He was speaking in Damascus after the US said there was "undeniable" proof of a chemical attack.

Mr Muallem said UN weapons inspectors had been unable to go to a second site because they were stopped by rebels.

The US and its allies are considering launching strikes on Syria in response to deadly attacks last week.
