(Worthy News) - Syria's UN ambassador told the United Nations Security Council Tuesday that a UN security team traveled to the town of Douma, outside the capital Damascus, to ascertain whether it was safe for global chemical weapons experts to visit the site of a suspected chemical weapons attack last week that killed dozens.
Bashar Ja'afari said if the team decides "the situation is sound," the fact-finding mission from the international chemical weapons watchdog — Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons — will start work there Wednesday.
Earlier on Tuesday, Syrian state media falsely reported that members of the world's chemical weapons watchdog had entered Douma. [ Source: Deutche Welle (Read More...) ]
