http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-22549861The BBC has been shown evidence claiming to corroborate reports of a chemical attack in Syria last month.
A BBC correspondent who visited the northern town of Saraqeb was told by eyewitnesses that government helicopters had dropped at least two devices containing poisonous gas.
The government has vehemently denied claims it has used chemical agents.
The US has warned that such a development would be a "red line" for possible intervention.
However, President Barack Obama said the current intelligence on possible chemical weapon usage did not constitute sufficient proof.
A number of videos passed to the BBC appear to support these claims, but it is impossible to independently verify them.
A doctor who treated the dead woman said her symptoms corresponded to organophosphate poisoning and that samples had been sent for testing.
Laat Amerika maar naar Syrie gaan, ze zullen daar net als in Irak en Afghanistan een nieuw verlies tegemoet komen dat zwaarder zal zijn dan dat ze hebben geleden in die landen tezamen.
