Inspectors Say Chlorine Gas Was Likely Used in Syria


Chemical weapons inspectors who came under attack while investigating claims of chlorine gas attacks in Syria last month found information suggesting that similar chemicals had indeed been used, the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) said Tuesday.

According to Reuters, the OPCW, which is overseeing the destruction of Syria's chemical stockpile, said inspectors had information pointing to chlorine gas-like chemicals having been used despite having been forced to cut short their mission after the attack.
