Syria chemical ‘attack’: Damascus attaches conditions to UN inquiry


The Syrian foreign minister Walid Muallem has set out conditions for any UN investigation into the deaths of dozens of people from a chemical agent on Tuesday.

He denied Syria had dropped chemical weapons from the air, despite facing widespread scepticism.

The UN’s child agency has confirmed that at least 27 children were killed.

A UK-based monitoring group, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, reported earlier that 86 people had died in the chemical incident in Khan Sheikhoun, Idlib province.
