BEIRUT (AP) - Syria's main Western-backed opposition is calling on the international community to act "urgently and decisively" on President Barack Obama's public assertions that Syria's use of chemical weapons would cross a "red line."

The White House and other top Obama administration officials said Thursday that U.S. intelligence has concluded with "varying degrees of confidence" that the Syrian government has twice used chemical weapons in its civil war.

A coalition statement called on the world community to prove to the Syrian regime that the statements about crossing a red line were not just "empty words."

It said failure to act will be seen by the regime as a green light to use chemical weapons on a larger scale in the future.
