Activists: Suspected chemical attacks in Syria injure 40

Suspected chlorine gas attacks by Syrian government helicopters injured some 40 people and killed a child in the country’s northwest, activists said Saturday, a day after an international chemical weapons watchdog said it was ready to investigate a series of newly claimed

attacks. Videos shared by the Syrian Civil Defense activist group showed medics and residents rushing children to a local hospital as they coughed, some gasping for air in Saraqeb, a town in Idlib province. A video from Nareb, another town in the province where a coalition of insurgent groups has made gains in recent days against troops loyal to President Bashar Assad, showed a medic receiving oxygen himself after rescuing people from another attack.
