Eleven international chemical arms investigators are believed to have been kidnapped in Syria, according to the Syrian foreign ministry.
They were abducted as they tried to visit a town where alleged chlorine gas attacks have recently been reported.
A statement from the ministry's official SANA news agency said: "Two cars were seized by terrorist groups carrying 11 people- five of them Syrian drivers and six from the fact-finding mission."
