Iraqis repulse suicide chlorine gas attack

Suicide truck bombers carrying highly toxic chlorine were blocked from attacks on the government center in Fallujah on Wednesday but detonated their explosives, wounding about 15 US and Iraqi security forces, the American military said. The statement did not give a breakdown of Iraqi and US forces wounded but said other "Iraqi soldiers and policemen were being treated" for breathing troubles, nausea, skin irritation and vomiting - symptoms of chlorine gas inhalation. No US or Iraqi forces were killed, the military said.
