UN Chemical Inspectors to Probe 7 Sites in Syria
Published 27-09-2013, 10:11
Damascus, Syria, September 27 (Associated Press) – The UN says its inspectors in Syria will investigate a total of seven sites where chemical weapons were allegedly used, including a Damascus suburb where hundreds were killed last month.

The UN office in Damascus said in a statement Friday that its team will write up a report "it hopes will be ready by late October." It was previously thought the UN probe would only look into three locations in Syria.

The United States says the August 21 attack in the Damascus suburb of Ghouta killed 1,429 people. Ghouta has been the focus of the UN team so far.

The northern town of Khan al-Assal is also on the list. Syrian President Bashar Assad's government and rebels have traded accusations of chemical weapons use in an attack there on March 19.
