Saudi Arabia urged the UN Security Council and EU ministers Wednesday to immediately address Syria's "massacre," following claims the army killed more than 650 people in a chemical attack.

"It is time for the UN Security Council to assume responsibility... by convening immediately to reach a clear deterrent decision that ends the humanitarian tragedy," said Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal.

"We ask EU foreign ministers meeting today in Brussels (to discuss the Egyptian crisis) to have this humanitarian catastrophe as the main topic of their talks," he told AFP.
