UN chief says Cold War is back

The UN's secretary general has said the Cold War is "back with a vengeance". Antonio Guterres also warned about the dangers of escalation over Syria. The US and its allies are considering launching missile strikes against Syria after a suspected chemical attack, an action which Russia - whose forces are there supporting the government- has said would risk starting a war. Russia has accused the UK of faking an attack, an allegation Britain dismissed as a "grotesque, blatant lie".
