At least 60 people have been killed in northern Syria after being exposed to a toxic gas that survivors said was dropped from warplanes, an attack that sparked comparisons to the most infamous act of the country’s six-year war.
At least another 100 people were being treated in hospitals in Idlib province, where the strike took place at dawn on Tuesday. Several dozen others were transferred to Turkey, some in critical condition.
