Iraqi insurgents resort to gas attacks

Iraqi insurgents resort to gas attacks
Two suicide bomb attacks involving toxic chlorine gas has made 350 people sick in the Iraqi town of Falluja. Hospital sources report eight people were killed as a result of the attack.

Earlier, the U.S. forces said they discovered an al Qaeda car-bomb factory that was making bombs with chlorine.

The gas causes severe burns when inhaled. It was first used as a weapon in World War I.
