UN experts leave Damascus hotel at end of weapons probe
DAMASCUS (AFP) - A team of UN inspectors left their Damascus hotel in a convoy of cars on Saturday following the conclusion of their probe into the alleged use of chemical weapons by the regime.
The 13 inspectors, led by Mr Ake Sellstrom, were seen loading their luggage into seven UN vehicles before setting off from their hotel , an AFP correspondent said.
The team have been investigating allegations of use of chemical weapons by the Syrian regime against its own people.
The departure of the UN experts heightened expectations of a possible international military strike against the regime.
