UNITED NATIONS (AP) — The U.N. says chemical weapons experts who returned to Syria will be investigating three alleged incidents of chemical weapons use earlier this year and seeking information on three alleged incidents last month.
The inspectors reported last week that the deadly nerve agent sarin was used in an Aug. 21 attack outside Damascus.
U.N. spokesman Martin Nesirky said Wednesday the mission will also discuss with the Syrian government "information that it may possess regarding allegations it reported on the use of chemical weapons" in incidents on the following days — Aug. 22, 24 and 25.
He said the inspectors will visit the village of Khan al-Assal near Aleppo to probe a March 19 incident and two other sites. The inspectors identified them in last week's report as Sheik Maqsood and Saraqueb.
