The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

WASH­ING­TON: UN mon­i­tors have con­cluded that the Syr­ian gov­ern­ment used chlo­rine gas in a third chem­i­cal weapons at­tack last year, draw­ing in­ter­na­tional con­dem­na­tion on Satur­day. A leaked re­port by the Or­gan­i­sa­tion for the Pro­hi­bi­tion of Chem­i­cal Weapons said Syr­ian gov­ern­ment he­li­copters had dropped bar­rel bombs with chlo­rine gas on the north­west prov­ince of Idlib in March last year. “We con­demn in the strong­est pos­si­ble terms (the Bashar alAs­sad) regime’s de­fi­ance of the long­stand­ing global norm against chem­i­cal weapons use,” White House spokesman Ned Price said. – AFP
