A monitoring group and opposition activists said six people, including three young children, were killed in the alleged regime gas attack in the village of Sarmin, in Idlib province. “We are looking very closely into this matter and considering next steps,” said Kerry, who led moves to force Syria to hand over its stock of chemical weapons last year to the international community for destruction. Activists in Sarmin said chlorine gas had been used and published videos of a chaotic field hospital where disoriented victims coughed and held gas masks over their faces, as children cried in the background.
