UN Finds Evidence Of Chemical Use In Syria

Published on Thursday, 06 Jun 09:51 am

A United Nations human rights team announced on Tuesday that it had "reasonable grounds" to believe that limited amounts of chemical weapons had been used in Syria, but that more evidence was needed to determine definitive proof of which agent was used and who the perpetrators were. The commission examined four reported toxic attacks in March and April. The report comes as the international community struggles to set a date for a peace conference on Syria, where the conflict is believed to have killed at least eighty thousand people. US President Barack Obama has stated that Syria's use of chemical weapons would cross a "red line" (AP).
