UN Security Council meets on Friday to attempt to agree on a response to the continued use of chemical weapons in Syria

United Nations Security Council members were moved to tears on Thursday as Syrian doctors described their desperate attempts to save dying children from recent chemical attacks, prompting renewed calls for accountability.

Dr Mohamed Tennari spent several months treating victims after a series of barrel bombs filled with chlorine were dropped across towns and villages in the country's northern province of Idlib in March.

He showed a video of a suspected chlorine attack on March 16 in his town of Sarmin, with images of three children, aged one, two and three, dying despite attempts to resuscitate them. The medical area was so cramped that one of the children was lying on top of their grandmother, who also died.
