China says probing reports Chinese chlorine used in Syria attack

Published: 04.23.14, 14:17 / Israel News

BEIJING - China's foreign ministry said on Wednesday that it was investigating reports that a chlorine canister bearing the name of the country's biggest arms maker was shown in footage believed to document a gas attack in Syria this month.

 

Attacks this month in several areas in Syria share characteristics that have led analysts to believe that there is a coordinated chlorine
bomb campaign, with growing evidence that it is the government side dropping the weapons.

 

In the rebel-held village of Kfar Zeita in the central province of Hama, 125 miles (200 km) north of Damascus, opposition activists uploaded video of people choking and being fed oxygen following what they said were bombs dropped from helicopters on April 11 and 12. Further footage showed a partially exploded canister with the chemical symbol for chlorine along with the name of Chinese arms manufacturer Norinco. (Reuters)
