UN experts in Syria to visit site of 'gas attack'

UN weapons experts are due to inspect a site where reportedly poison gas killed hundreds of people in Damascus suburbs, amid calls from the West for action.

Syria agreed on Sunday to allow the inspectors to visit the site. Foreign Secretary William Hague has said the evidence to prove the Assad regime carried out a chemical attack on Syrian civilians may have been destroyed in the days since.
