UN Says Probing Suspected Chemical Weapons Use in Syria

United Nations war crimes investigators on Tuesday said they were investigating reports that chemical weapons were being used in rebel-held zones in war-ravaged Syria.

The UN Commission of Inquiry on the human rights situation in Syria voiced alarm that it had received "multiple reports -- which it is now investigating -- that bombs allegedly containing weaponised chlorine have been used in the town of Saraqeb in Idlib and in Douma in Eastern Ghouta."
