UN chemical team arrives in Syria to finish investigation — RT News

The inspectors, led by chief expert Ake Sellstrom, arrived in Beirut, Lebanon, and from there traveled overland to Damascus.A convoy of five United Nations cars carrying at least eight members of the team arrived at a central Damascus hotel shortly before midday 09:00 GMT, Reuters cited a witness as saying.The teams will focus on examining 14 alleged attacks when chemical weapons or chemical agents were used during the 30-month conflict that the UN estimates has killed more than 110,000 people.In August, the Syrian government allowed the UN expert team to visit and take probes at three locations. One site to be visited by the UN team is at Khan al-Assal, near Aleppo, where President Bashar Assad’s government says rebels used chemical weapons in March. Two additional locations have not yet been confirmed.The team hopes to be able to present a final report, addressing all of the accusations, “possibly by the end of October,” AFP reports.
