Washington, Sep 8: A team of United Nations inspectors investigating use of chemical weapons in Syria could submit initial findings by the end of next week.
German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung said the interim report to U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon will likely contain details on the gas, ammunition and delivery systems used in the attack that killed hundreds of people in a suburb of Damascus.
Chief U.N. spokesman Martin Nesirky said they have said many times that there will be no preliminary report, Fox News reports.
Nesirky said that the report on the August 21 incident will be given to the Security Council and other member states once the lab analysis is complete.
According to the report, the newspaper said its report was based on information provided by two unnamed persons close to the inspection team.
The paper reported that the inspectors collected almost 100 samples from the site of the attack, including pieces of rubble and ammunitions remains, hair, tissue, blood and urine samples from humans and animals.(ANI)
