UNICEF Spokesman: Doctors Poisoned By Contact With Syrian Gas Victims

A spokesman for the UN Children's Fund (UNICEF) has reported new details from the April 4 chemical attack in Khan Sheikhoun in Idlib Province in Syria that killed dozens of civilians. Speaking in Geneva, Christophe Boulierac said that hospital staff experienced symptoms of poisoning just from working with patients exposed to chemical agents and that they lacked basic supplies needed to respond to the emergency.
