Isil ‘launch second chemical attack in Syrian town’ say doctors

Doctors and activists in Syria on Tuesday accused the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) of launching a second chemical weapon attack in Marea, a strategically important town north of Aleppo.

Some 20 casualties were reportedly left with breathing difficulties and angry blisters. A field researcher with the Syrian Network for Human Rights said the shells oozed black liquid, leaving an “awful” smell.
