Chem­i­cal weapons likely used in Syria last year: watch­dog

StarMetro Halifax - - CANADA & WORLD -

The Or­ga­ni­za­tion for the Pro­hi­bi­tion of Chem­i­cal Weapons, the global chem­i­cal weapons watch­dog, says the nerve agent sarin and toxic chem­i­cal chlo­rine were “very likely” used as weapons in two at­tacks in Syria in March 2017. The OPCW’S team is not man­dated to ap­por­tion blame. The or­ga­ni­za­tion says its find­ings were based on wit­ness tes­ti­mony and anal­y­sis of sam­ples.
