Chemical weapons inspectors were attacked in Syria this morning but are now safe and well, the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons has said.
"Our inspectors are in Syria to establish the facts in relation to persistent allegations of chlorine gas attacks," said OPCW Director-General, Ambassador Ahmet Üzümcü.
"Their safety is our primary concern, and it is imperative that all parties to the conflict grant them safe and secure access."
Earlier the Syrian ministry claimed six inspectors had been kidnapped along with five Syrian drivers.
It remains unclear who is responsible for the alleged attack.
