UN chemical arms experts speak to Syria survivors: Ban
UNITED NATIONS (AFP) - UN experts spoke on Monday to victims of a suspected chemical weapons attack in Syria despite their convoy coming under sniper fire, UN leader Ban Ki Moon said.
The United Nations has made "a strong complaint" to both the Syrian government and opposition rebels over the sniper attack, Mr Ban said in a video statement from Seoul.
Despite the "very dangerous circumstances" faced by the team, he said the investigators "visited two hospitals, they interviewed witnesses, survivors and doctors, they also collected some samples."
According to UN officials, the hospitals are in the Moadamiyet al-Sham district near Damascus.
