Sarin found in Syria’s March attack

Samples from an attack by Syrian forces in March on an opposition-held town has tested positive for the banned nerve agent sarin in an examination by the global chemical weapons watchdog, sources told Reuters.

The March 30 air strike in the town of Latamneh, in the northern Syrian Hama area, injured around 70 people who suffered nausea, foaming at the mouth and muscle spasms.

“Samples analysis results show clear presence of sarin,” a source told Reuters of the findings by the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW).
