(AP) U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel says the Obama administration is still weighing the question of whether to use military force in Syria in response to a purported chemical weapons attack.


Speaking to reporters Sunday in the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur, Hagel declined to say what action the U.S. might take.


He said the administration is weighing many factors. These include an intelligence assessment of the attack in Syria, as well as what he called legal issues and the matter of international support for any military response.


Hagel is in Malaysia to start a long-planned one-week Asia tour, even as he remains in contact with Washington about unfolding events in Syria.
