Syria TV questions chemical attack allegations

Syrian state TV was airing interviews on Sunday with nearly a dozen doctors and medics who say they found no trace of poisonous gas in the town of Douma, where opposition activists and first responders say a chemical attack by government forces killed more than 40 people.

 

The suspected attack on April 7 prompted the US, Britain and France to launch a wave of missile strikes a week later targeting what they said was the Syrian government's chemical weapons program. Syria's government has denied ever using such weapons.

 

US and French officials say they have evidence the government carried out a chemical attack, but have not made it public.
