One dead in raid on Syria 'chemical attack' town: monitor

One dead in raid on Syria 'chemical attack' town: monitorOne woman was killed in an air strike Saturday on the Syrian town of Khan Sheikhun, site of a suspected chemical weapons attack earlier this week, a monitor said. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said it was unclear if the strike on the rebel-held town in northwest Syria’s Idlib province was carried out by Syrian planes or those of government ally Russia. The death was the first in the town since a suspected chemical weapons attack on Tuesday that killed 87 civilians, including 31 children, and left hundreds suffering symptoms including convulsions, vomiting and foaming at the mouth.
