The death toll from a suspected chemical attack in Syria has now reached 75. Activists and rescue workers were busy around the clock yesterday, finding terrified survivors hiding in shelters across the northern town. The Tuesday attack was among the worst so far in the country's six year civil war, leaving residents gasping for air and convulsing in the streets. Although the Syrian government denies any involvement in the attack, Russian officials allege that a Syrian airstrike hit a rebel arsenal, releasing the toxic chemicals.
