UK PM May calls for investigation into reported Syria chemical attack | Reuters

RIYADH British Prime Minister Theresa May called for an investigation into reports of a chemical weapons attack in northern Syria on Tuesday.

"I'm appalled by the reports that there's been a chemical weapons attack on a town south of Idlib, allegedly by the Syrian regime," May said while visiting Saudi Arabia.

"If proven, this will be further evidence of the barbarism of the Syrian regime." She urged the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons to investigate the incident. (Reporting by Katie Paul; editing by Andrew Roche)
