The global chemical weapons agency will investigate an alleged gas attack in Syria's Aleppo that reportedly wounded 100 people on Saturday, a source said on Monday.

The agency will first consider whether the allegations are credible, weigh security issues and then deploy a fact-finding team to the site if possible, a source said.

A health official in Aleppo said victims suffered breathing difficulties, eye inflammation and other symptoms suggesting the use of chlorine gas.
