Syria today denied UN accusations that it was behind Toxic gas attack in April, saying the government does not use chemical weapons against its people.

In a letter to UN headquarters in Geneva, quoted by the official news agency, the Damascus government denied the claim and said Syria has not and will not use toxic gases against its people because it does not have them.

On Wednesday, United Nations war crimes investigators said they had evidence Syrian government forces were behind a chemical attack using sarin gas on Khan Sheikhun in April that killed dozens.

At least 87 people including more than 30 children died in the April 4 attack on Khan Sheikhun, a town in the
opposition-held province of Idlib, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitoring group.
