The United Nations has called for an emergency meeting following the chemical weapons attack in northern Syria that killed at least 100 people yesterday.

The incident, dubbed the worst chemical attack in recent history, left 400 others injured. It was reported that people were left gasping for breath and convulsing in the streets and overcrowded hospitals.

Following the attack a hospital in Syria's northern Idlib province was hit soon after the area was bombarded with a suspected chemical agent.

President Trump responded with this statement: "Today's chemical attack in Syria against innocent people, including women and children, is reprehensible and cannot be ignored by the civilized world. These heinous actions by the Bashar al-Assad regime are a consequence of the past administration's weakness and irresolution. President Obama said in 2012 that he would establish a "red line" against the use of chemical weapons and then did nothing. The United States stands with our allies across the globe to condemn this intolerable attack."
