President Barack Obama says he hasn't made a final decision about a military strike against Syria. But he says he's considering a limited and narrow action in response to a chemical weapons attack that he says Syria's government carried out last week.

Obama says that attack was a challenge to the world and threatens U.S. national security. Obama's comment came after the U.S. released an intelligence assessment that found with ``high confidence'' that Syrian President Bashar Assad's government carried out a chemical weapons attack last week.     

The U.S. says the attack killed more than 1,400 people.

Obama spoke before meeting at the White House with three Baltic leaders.
