The United States is looking into reports that Islamic State fighters used chlorine gas against Iraqi security forces, US Secretary of State John Kerry said on Friday.

Kerry, speaking to reporters after meeting his South Korean counterpart, said he was unable to confirm media reports that chlorine gas was used against Iraqi police officers last month.

"These allegations are extremely serious and we are seeking additional information in order to be able to determine whether or not we can confirm it," Kerry said.
