UN Inspectors: Chemical Weapons Probably Used in Four Locations in Syria This Year

Mandate bans the inspectors for putting blame on the Assad regime or the opposition

Chemical weapons were probably used in four locations in Syria this year, in addition to the confirmed attack near Damascus in August that forced the government to abandon its secret chemical stockpile, U.N. inspectors have said.

In a report released Thursday, the experts, led by Swedish professor Ake Sellstrom, examined seven alleged chemical weapons attacks and said it lacked information to corroborate the allegations at two locations.
