UN Confirms: Sarin Used in Syria Chemical Attack – Report
There is "convincing evidence" that sarin gas was used in a rocket attack in Syria’s Damascus last month, a UN report is to confirm, according to international media.
Text seen in a photograph of the front page of the report - to be released later - does not apportion blame, the BBC informs.
The text of the front page can be seen in a photograph of chief UN chemical weapons investigator Ake Sellstrom handing over the report to Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.
"The conclusion is that chemical weapons have been used in the ongoing conflict between the parties in the Syrian Arab Republic ... against civilians, including children, on a relatively large scale," inspectors said on the first page.
Ban is scheduled to present the report to the UN Security Council later on Monday.
US allegations that the Syrian government was responsible for the chemical attack led to threats of military action and then a US-Russia deal for Syria to make safe its chemical arms.
On Monday, France, Britain and the US announced they would seek a "strong" UN resolution with "serious consequences" if Syria fails to hand over its chemical weapons.

Dear American friends. As long as I remember a member of the Saudi royal family and a national hero of Arabia has organized and executed a mass murder of thousands of American on 11 of September with the purpose to: 1. Show how week and inferior is the American state, culture and morale; 2.How superior is the particular version of Islam that his people promote all over the world; 3.How the Wahhabi warriors have no fear and can do what the Americans cannot.
Instead of retaliation to the promoters and inspirators of this violence the Americans attracted exactly their enemies – the secular states of the Arab world. And now USA is helping the ALKaeda fighters in Syria to establish a sharia rule over the land. That is to establish this system of moral and social values for which Osama killed at 11 of September. So dear Americans now I suggest for you to continue and do an anal service in addition to the oral service you are already doing for so long. And your so important Arab trade partners, who also control the bank accounts and the media for brainwashing in your country … they will be happy. Afterwards they will want more !!!! but you will provide it…. You have no choice, because after all you live in the most free and democratic country where nothing depends on you. Forgive me if it does not sounds good. May be I am a Communist or Russian or a Martian and my words have no value.
