Chemical inspectors begin Douma effort days after Western strikes

Chemical inspectors begin Douma effort
International investigators entered on April 17 a Syrian town hit by an alleged chemical attack, after days of delay and warnings by  Western powers that crucial evidence had likely been removed.


The suspected gas attack on April 7 on Douma, near Damascus, reportedly left more than 40 people dead and was blamed by Western powers on the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

In response, the United States, France and Britain conducted unprecedented missile strikes on Syrian military installations, but Paris admitted on April 17 they were a matter of “honor” that had solved nothing.

“Experts from the chemical weapons committee enter the town of Douma,” state news agency SANA wrote, referring to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW).
