UN Inspectors Resume Syria Inquiry
UN chemical weapons inspectors have resumed their investigations in Syria, as speculation mounts over a possible Western strike on military targets.
The team's operation was suspended on Tuesday due to security concerns.
On Monday the team's convoy was shot at by unidentified snipers.
Just hours earlier US Vice President Joe Biden signaled that the United States - with its allies - was ready to act.
"Those who use chemical weapons against defenseless men, women and children should and must be held accountable," Biden said in a speech to the American Legion.
The vice president's remarks echoed those made by other US officials in recent days, as well as many of the nation's foremost allies.
The Syrian government has strongly denied claims it used chemical weapons.
The United States, meanwhile, is conducting its own investigation. The intelligence report will include forensic evidence and intercepted communications among Syrian military commanders, according to unnamed officials, as cited by CNN.
