BEIRUT, Sept 27
BEIRUT, Sept 27 (Reuters) - U.N. chemical weapons inspectors in Syria are investigating seven cases of alleged chemical or biological weapons use, including three incidents around Damascus after the Aug. 21 attack which almost triggered U.S. air strikes.
A statement from the United Nations in Damascus on Friday said the team expected to finalise its work in Syria on Monday, and was working on a comprehensive report which it hoped would be ready by late October.
