Syria monitor says government forces kill six in gas attack

BEIRUT (Reuters) - A group monitoring the Syrian civil war said on Tuesday that government forces had carried out a poison gas attack that killed six people in the northwest, and medics posted videos of young children suffering what they said was suffocation.

The Syrian government has previously denied accusations that it has used chemical weapons in the four-year-old war. A Syrian military source said he did not have any information about the alleged attack in the village of Sarmin in Idlib province.
