Ban Ki-moon to receive report on Syria

Published:Thursday | August 29, 2013 | 12:26 PM

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon says he expects a report on Saturday from weapons inspectors investigating an apparent Syrian chemical attack.

Syria denies using chemical weapons and blames opposition fighters for the attack on August 21, which reportedly killed hundreds of people near Damascus.

United State President Barack Obama has said he has not yet decided on a plan for retaliatory action against Syria.

Other nations are also considering the next move.

In the meantime, the UN secretary general has appealed for the team to be given time to do its job.
