France: Tests Confirm Sarin Gas Used In Syria

Samples taken from Syria and tested in France have confirmed that sarin gas has been used there multiple times, France’s foreign minister said Tuesday.

Laurent Fabius said the tests carried out by a French laboratory “prove the presence of sarin in the samples in our possession.” He said France “now is certain that sarin gas was used in Syria multiple times and in a localized way.”

The brief statement concluded: “It would be unacceptable that those guilty of these crimes benefit from impunity.
