UN chief calls for unfettered probe of alleged Syria chemical attack

The UN secretary general says he was outraged by the latest report of a chemical weapons attack in Syria and calls for unfettered access for international investigators.

“Any confirmed use of chemical weapons, by any party to the conflict and under any circumstances, is abhorrent and a clear violation of international law,” Secretary General Antonio Guterres says in a statement.

“The seriousness of the recent allegations requires a thorough investigation using impartial, independent and professional expertise,” he says.
