U.N investigator calls for a new probe in chemical weapons attacks

Chief U.N chemical weapons investigator in Syria said there should be a new probe to determine who was responsible for chemical weapons attacks that killed hundreds in Syria . Ake Sellstrom led a team that confirmed the use of chemical weapons in a major attack on Aug. 21 near Damascus, and their probable use in four other locations against civilians and soldiers. His team’s mandate was to determine whether chemical weapons were used – not to establish responsibility.

He said in an interview late Monday that if there was no accountability “I will think it’s sad”, adding using chemical weapons was “a hideous crime ... so it’s logical that this should be followed up and brought to court somehow, or brought to a tribunal, or brought to something”.
