Global Week in Review: Alleged Syria Gas Attack Raises Global Alarm
Alleged Gas Attack Sparks International Outcry
Syrian President Bashar Assad’s regime bombed rebel-held suburbs on Thursday in eastern Damascus, where government forces had led an alleged chemical attack killing more than 100 people the prior day. Anti-regime activists have reported more than 1,300 deaths, many of them children and women. A U.N. team already in Syria to inspect past chemical attack claims has been urged to investigate the site of the recent alleged massacre.
