UN Inspector: Team to Return to Syria within Weeks

Ake Sellstrom told AP Wednesday that the team will evaluate "allegations of chemical weapons use from both sides, but perhaps mainly from the Syrian government's side."

He said he doesn't currently think there is a need for more investigations of the Aug. 21 attacks, but said "if we receive any additional information it will be included next time we report."

He declined to specify where the inspectors would go or which specific events they would look more closely at.
