AMSTERDAM - The global chemical weapons watchdog will investigate claims of chlorine gas attacks in Syrian villages that killed six and wounded dozens this month, a source told Reuters on Thursday.

The source at the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), who spoke on condition of anonymity, said a fact-finding mission will examine reports of several barrel bombs in the northwestern Idlib region.
