Sarin Nerve Gas Found in Fallujah

NPR reports that a truck containing canisters of the deadly nerve agent was found hidden in the Iraqi city of Fallujah. The source and age of the supply of Sarin was not known, but labels on the canisters were in English.

US forces have suspected that nerve gas might be used in the defense of Fallujah and have had gas masks available during the attack.
