Swedish-led UN weapons experts leave Syria

The UN weapons inspectors led by Sweden’s Åke Sellström, who have been investigating alleged chemical weapons attacks in Syria, have now arrived in Lebanon. With their departure from Syria, apprehensions of a possible American-led intervention against the Assad regime are increasing.

But the Reuters news agency writes “the timing of any strikes may be complicated by (American President) Obama’s departure late on Tuesday for Sweden and a G20 summit in Russia”.
