Syrian government denies U.N. chemical attack report: SANA

BEIRUT (Reuters) - The Syrian government has denied a U.N. report accusing it of dropping sarin on a rebel-held town in Idlib province in April, state news agency SANA said on Friday.

U.N. war crimes investigators said this week that Syrian forces used chemical weapons more than two dozen times during the country’s civil war, including the sarin attack that killed scores of people.
