Syria conflict: New ‘IS chemical attack’

Islamic State (IS) militants may have used chemical weapons in an attack on a town in northern Syria on Friday.

Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) said on Tuesday it had treated four members of a family who suffered from breathing difficulties and developed blisters after a mortar hit their home in Marea.

The Syrian American Medical Society has also reported receiving 50 patients showing symptoms of chemical exposure.
