UN CW Inspectors Submit Syria Report
AP, Sep 16 2013
The UN says its chief CW inspector has turned over his team’s report on last month’s alleged poison gas attack in Syria to Sec-Gen Ban. UN spokesman Martin Nesirky said the report was transmitted Sunday and Ban will brief a closed session of the UNSC on its contents Monday morning. He will brief the UNGA later in the day. The team led by Ake Sellstrom was mandated to report on whether CW were used in the Aug 21 attack in Ghouta, and if so, what chemical agents were used, not on who was responsible. Ban said Friday that he believes there will be “an overwhelming report” that CW were used in the attack.
