UN inspectors will go to Syria to investigate three sites where chemical weapons attacks have been reported, the United Nations said Wednesday.

The Syrian government has blocked the inspectors since calling for a UN inquiry into the use of the banned arms in March.

“The mission will travel to Syria as soon as possible to contemporaneously investigate three of the reported incidents,” said UN spokesman Martin Nesirky.

The inspectors are being assembled in Europe now and could go to Syria as soon as next week.
