"A chemical weapon was used during fierce fighting in a strategically important Syrian town, rebels and the government claimed Tuesday, with both sides blaming the other for the deadly attack.
If it is confirmed that a banned chemical agent was used, it could significantly change the international response to the ongoing civil war.
The death toll was put at 25 by Syria’s state-run SANA news agency, which said dozens of other people were injured."
