UK military making contingency plans on Syria

LONDON (AP) — The British government says its military is drawing up contingency plans for a possible military attack on Syria.

The possible military response would be in reaction to an alleged chemical attack on civilians in Syria.

Prime Minister David Cameron is facing pressure to recall Parliament later this week to discuss the crisis in Syria.

Cameron’s office said Tuesday that the UK is considering a “proportionate” response that would deter Syrian President Bashar Assad from using chemical weapons in the future.
