Chlorine Bombs Mark New Insurgent Tactics in Iraq

From Chlorine Bombs Mark New Insurgent Tactics in Iraq:

Two bombs with chlorine gas have killed up to 11 people this week in Iraq, causing toxic fumes that have made scores more sick. Lt.-Gen. Raymond Odierno, commander of U.S. troops in Iraq, said U.S. forces had found chlorine cylinders in a car bomb factory near Falluja on Tuesday. Chlorine gas was used as a weapon in World War One.
