OPCW team makes second visit to Douma


Inspectors with the Global Chemical Weapons Agency have visited another place in Syria's Douma and tried to help them decide if prohibited toxic ammunition was used.

The Chemical Weapons Organization said in a statement Wednesday that samples taken by the team in the city just east of Damascus will be sent to OPCW-designated laboratories for analysis.

OPCW investigation mission visited Douma for the first time this week, two weeks after the 7th April attack. Your entry into the city was delayed by security fears.

More than 40 people were killed in the suspicion of chemical weapons attacks in the city. The OPCW team has the mandate to determine whether chemical weapons were used but not to distribute the blame.
