Syrian Opposition Says 1,300 Killed in Gas Attack [Photo]
Syria’s opposition group has accused President Bashar al-Assad’s forces of gassing hundreds of people on Wednesday. One report claims that as many as 1,300 were murdered. If these claims are substantiated, the attack would be the world’s worst chemical weapons attack in decades. Most recently, UN chemical arms experts arrived in Syria’s capital of Damascus on Sunday to investigate claims of chemical weapon use. Now Western countries have called for the UN experts to be dispatched to the reputed areas of chemical arms use. Syria is one of just a handful of countries that are not apart of the international treaty that bans chemical weapons.
