A suspected chemical attack killed dozens of people in a rebel-held area of Syria on Tuesday, activists said, describing an incident that would mark one of the worst of its kind in Syria's six-year civil war.
At least 83 people - including 25 children - died and at least 350 others were injured in the incident in northern Idlib province, southwest of Aleppo, the relief agency UOSSM told NBC News.
UOSSM, formally known as the Union of Medical Care and Relief Organizations, is a nonprofit coalition of groups treating to victims of the war in Syria.
Attorney General Faris Al-Rawi says the issue of whether the T&T Defence Force makes public the findings of its probe into the matter of children being photographed with high-powered weapons at their Cumuto facility is up to the army.
The AG was also adamant that when it came to the safety of his children, the issue was “non-negotiable.”
He made the comment yesterday, even as Advocacy Group Fixin T&T joined the list of citizens publicly voicing their concern over the matter and calling for the report to be made public.

The T&T Police Service’s (TTPS) Child Protection Unit (CPU) says it is concerned about the prevalence of sex crime against children. This as only 28 per cent of child abuse cases investigated by the unit have been resolved, while 84 per cent of the cases are currently before the court.
The statistics were given by the CPU’s Insp Beverly Paul during the weekly police briefing at the Police Administration Building in Port-of-Spain yesterday.
The CPU, which was established in May 2015, has so far investigated a total of 3,108 cases since its inception.
