Syrians trade Khan al-Assal chemical weapons claims
Syrian rebels and the government have accused each other of firing chemical weapons, reportedly killing at least 25 people in the north of the country.
A Syrian minister said it was a "dangerous escalation" and the "first act" of a new rebel authority.
However, both a chemical weapons monitoring body and the US said there was no evidence they had been used.
Both sides say the attack happened in the Khan al-Assal region north of the second city, Aleppo.
