SYRIA-CONFLICT

GRAPHIC CONTENT
A handout image released by the Syrian opposition’s Shaam News Network shows bodies of men and children lined up on the ground in a field hospital in the eastern Ghouta suburb of Damascus, whom the Syrian opposition said on August 21, 2013 were killed in a toxic gas attack by pro-government forces. The allegation of chemical weapons being used in the heavily-populated areas came on the second day of a mission to Syria by UN inspectors, but the claim, which could not be independently verified, was vehemently denied by the Syrian authorities, who said it was intended to hinder the mission of UN chemical weapons inspectors.
