DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. October 21, 2016, 9:08 PM (IDT)
Twenty-six people were feeling unwell and two were taken to hospital by ambulance with breathing difficulties, after a chemical incident at London City Airport Friday. Police are investigating the cause of a chemical leak. The airport has been closed and some 500 passengers and staff evacuated. Reports of a chemical incident sent three fire engines and “a range of specialist appliances” to the scene, the London Fire Brigade said in a statement. Emergency services are on hand.
Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.
