UN panel blames Syrian forces for Khan Sheikhoun attack: A new report by the UN and the chemical watchdog says the Syrian government was responsible for a chemical attack that killed scores of people in April.

More than 80 people, including many women and children, died when, on April 4, the nerve agent sarin or a sarin-like substance was dropped onto the opposition-held town of Khan Sheikhoun in the northern province of Idlib.

The United States launched a retaliatory cruise missile strike days later against a Syrian airbase from where it alleged the chemical weapons attack was launched.

The report from the United Nations and Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons’s (OPCW) Joint Investigative Mechanism (JIM) is expected to be released later on Thursday.
