Syrian activists claim deadly ‘toxic gas’ attack

BEIRUT, Lebanon — Syrian anti-government activists accused the regime of carrying out a toxic gas attack that killed at least 100 people, including many children, during intense artillery and rocket barrages today on the eastern suburbs of Damascus, part of a fierce government offensive in the area.

The attack coincided with the visit by a 20-member U.N. chemical weapons team to Syria to investigate three sites where chemical weapons attacks allegedly occurred during the past year. Their presence raises questions about why the regime — which called the claims of the attack today “absolutely baseless” — would use chemical agents at this time.
