Idlib hospitals overwhelmed after suspected gas attack

Syrian government fighter jets have attacked rebel-held Idlib province a day after a suspected chemical attack killed scores of people.

The Russian defence ministry is blaming the rebels for Tuesday’s attack, saying Syrian government jets hit a warehouse containing the gas.

With local hospitals failing to cope with the sheer number of victims, some were taken to neighbouring Turkey for treatment.
