Watchdog: Sarin or similar toxin used in Syria attack
An international chemical weapons inspector has found "incontrovertible" evidence that sarin gas or a similar substance was used in a chemical attack in Syria. The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) took biomedical samples from 10 victims of the April 4 attack on Khan Sheikhoun and found indications that they were exposed to Sarin or a Sarin-like substance, CNN reported on Thursday. The findings showed that stockpiles of Sarin still exist in Syria. OPCW Director General Ahmet Uzumcu said the biomedical samples were collected from three deceased victims, as well as from seven others in a hospital.
