Watchdog Finds Evidence of Chemicals in Syria Gas Attack

Friday, 06 July 2018 02:37 PM EDT

THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — The global chemical weapons watchdog says in an interim report on the suspected chemical attack in Syria's Douma last April that "various chlorinated organic chemicals" were found at the site.

The Fact-Finding Mission of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons warned however that it was too early to come to full conclusions, saying that "work by the team to establish the significance of these results is on-going."

The OPCW is investigating the suspected April 7 chemical attack on the town of Douma, near the capital, Damascus. The United States, Britain and France blamed Syrian government forces and launched punitive airstrikes. Syria denied responsibility. The OPCW does not designate blame for chemical attacks.
