The U.N. political chief is urging the divided members of the U.N. Security Council to send a strong message after the chemical weapons attack in Syria "that any use of chemical weapons shall not be tolerated and will have consequences."

Jeffrey Feltman told an emergency council meeting Friday the council should unite on a resolution demanding an investigation of the attack that prompted U.S. airstrikes against the Assad government.

He says the international community has a responsibility to hold all perpetrators accountable "and that chemical weapons are never again used as an instrument of warfare."

Feltman says it's impossible to protect civilians in Syria as long as the government and opposition "are permitted to act with impunity."
