Speaking at the Hague, Russia says there is no proof of chemical attack in Syria

BBC OS gives a vibrant account of the day\u2019s events with explanation and reaction from those involved.

Speaking at the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons at the Hague, Russia says they have brought several Syrians from Douma, where the OPCW is investigating the alleged use of chemical weapons in an attack in April. The say there is no proof that a chemical attack took place. Britain’s ambassador described the briefing as 'a stunt'. We follow events live.

And we hear from Spain where five men accused of gang-raping an 18-year-old woman have been convicted of sexual abuse but acquitted of the more serious crime of rape, in a case that has sparked a national outcry. Also we look ahead the the South and North Korean summit.
