Snipers in Syria shoot at UN chemical inspectors: UN

NEW YORK — Unidentified snipers shot at UN experts Monday forcing them to suspend their attempt to investigate claims that chemical weapons had been used near Damascus, a UN spokesman said.

“The first vehicle of the chemical weapons investigation team was deliberately shot at multiple times by unidentified snipers,” said UN spokesman Martin Nesirky. No injuries were reported.
