New York Times open source investigation into Khan Sheikhoun chemical weapons attack

The New York Times recently conducted a detailed investigation into the Khan Sheikhoun chemical weapons attack in Syria, and they presented their findings in the video below.

Most importantly for researchers interested in open source investigations, Malachy Browne, who led the project, provided detailed insights into how they investigated the incident using open source and geospatial analysis. Our goal at the Citizen Evidence Lab is to provide resources and case studies on human rights related open source investigations, and we regularly provide insights into our research both in this space and our Medium site Lemming Cliff. The insights provided by Malachy are highly useful for both new and seasoned open source researchers, and I encourage everyone to check out his write up in the New York Times, and his Twitter chat where he provides additional steps.
