The world's chemical weapons watchdog said today deadly sarin and chlorine were used in two separate attacks in the village of Latamneh in northwestern Syria in March last year.
"Sarin was very likely used as a chemical weapon in the south" of Latamneh on 24 March 2017, the Hague-based Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons said in a statement.
Its fact-finding mission "also concluded that chlorine was very likely used as a chemical weapon" at Latamneh's hospital and surrounding area on 25 March 2017.
