NEW YORK: Unidentified snipers shot at UN experts Monday forcing them to suspend their attempt to investigate claims that chemical weapons had been used near Damascus, a UN spokesman said.

“The first vehicle of the chemical weapons investigation team was deliberately shot at multiple times by unidentified snipers,” said UN spokesman Martin Nesirky. No injuries were reported.

The UN experts have to start investigating for a suspected Syrian chemical attack as a sceptical Washington weighing military action and coordinating with allies said Syria’s acceptance of the probe came too late.
