Six U.N. vehicles left the Four Seasons hotel in Damascus on Wednesday and were understood to be travelling to the area. U.N. High Representative for Disarmament Affairs Angela Kane was on hand to watch the convoy depart. The team delayed a visit due on Tuesday for safety reasons after being shot by unknown snipers during a first site visit. Opponents of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad say his forces used rockets loaded with poison gas in the middle of a fierce offensive on the Damascus outskirts, with activists putting the death toll between 500 and more than 1,000. Assad denies the charges.
