Syrian opposition claims 'poisonous gas' attack

Wednesday, 21 August 2013 01:42 Published in National News

   BEIRUT (AP) - Two Syrian pro-opposition groups are claiming that government forces carried out a "poisonous gas" attack near the capital Damascus, leaving dozens of people dead.

   The two groups quote activists as saying that regime forces fired "rockets with poisonous gas heads" in the attack on Wednesday.

   The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says the shelling was intense and hit the eastern suburbs of Zamalka, Arbeen and Ein Tarma.

   It says "tens of people" were killed. The Local Coordination Committees said hundreds of people were killed or injured in the shelling. Such different figures are common in the immediate aftermaths of attacks in Syria.

   There was no government comment on the claims and the reports could not be independently confirmed.

   St. Louis County Police arrested the male teacher Tuesday at Sperreng Middle School.  His name hasn't been released.  

   Police say the alleged incidents date back to 1996.  The victim reportedly came forward this summer with allegations.

   Sperreng Middle School is in the Lindbergh School District in south St. Louis County. 

21 killed in northwest China flash flood

Wednesday, 21 August 2013 00:30 Published in National News

   BEIJING (AP) - Chinese state media say a flash flood swept through a construction site and killed at least 21 workers in the northwestern Chinese province of Qinghai. Three workers are still missing.

   The official Xinhua News Agency said Wednesday that rescuers are searching for those missing from Tuesday's disaster in Wulan county, and that seven injured people had been sent to hospitals. The remote region lies amid high mountains, 2,500 kilometers (1,500 miles) west of Beijing.

   Elsewhere in China, heavy flooding in the extreme south and northeast has left more than 200 dead or missing in recent days.

   Flooding and landslides in southern China have been chiefly caused by rains brought by last week's Typhoon Utor. Another storm was bearing down on Taiwan and expected to arrive on mainland China sometime Thursday.
