It has been thirty years since the Iraqi government of Saddam Hussein launched a chemical attack on the Kurdish city of Halabja, killing thousands of people.

For survivors, the pain is never far away.

But despite multiple treaties to ban chemical weapons around the world, poison gas attacks on civilians have not stopped.
