Global Watchdog Sending Team to Probe Alleged Syria Gas Attack




The global chemical weapons watchdog said Tuesday it will "shortly" deploy a fact-finding team to the rebel-held Syrian town of Douma to probe an alleged poison gas attack.
Coinciding with a request from both Syria and its ally Russia to investigate the allegations, "the OPCW technical secretariat has requested the Syrian Arab Republic to make the necessary arrangements for such a deployment," the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons said in a statement.
"The team is preparing to deploy to Syria shortly," it added.
