"UN Chemical Weapons Team Departing Soon for Syria"

"UNITED NATIONS — After months of negotiations, the United Nations announced Wednesday that U.N. experts will depart imminently for Syria to investigate alleged chemical weapons use."

"Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon gave the green light after the Syrian government accepted arrangements for the investigation.

The team is expected to visit three sites where chemical weapons attacks allegedly occurred, but diplomats and chemical weapons experts have raised doubts about whether they will find anything since the alleged incidents took place months ago."
