PHILADELPHIA -- Former secretary of state Hillary Rodham Clinton reiterated her support of President Obama's approach to Syria Tuesday evening, saying Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s alleged use of chemical weapons was “inhuman” and demanded a response.

Clinton, repeating language she used Monday during an appearance at the White House, said in Philadelphia that the Syrian chemical weapons attack “violates a universal norm at the heart of our global order and it demands a strong response from the international community led by the United States.”
