The inspectors have been in Damascus for a week

International chemical weapons experts have finally gone to the site of the suspected attack in Syria, Russia’s foreign ministry says.

The team from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) left Damascus for the nearby town of Douma on Saturday, it adds.

Western states say Syria’s government mounted chemical air attacks on the town on 7 April, causing many deaths.

Syria and Russia, which control Douma since militants left, deny this.
