Assad regime accused of killing its own in Syria
Syria - There is international outcry over allegations that the Syrian government has used chemical weapons against its own people.
Activists say at least 130 people, including more than a dozen children, were killed Wednesday when government forces unleashed toxic gas near the capital of Damascus.
Videos, too gruesome to air, have appeared on YouTube and other social media which appear to show piles of dead and injured.
President Bashar al-Assad has denied the claims.
The U.N. is being urged to investigate, and says if the claims are true, it could prompt sanctions or even military action against Assad.
