SYRIA (WKOW) -- Lebanese airport officials say a team of U.N. chemical weapons inspectors has arrived in Beirut on its way back to Syria.
U.N officials say the inspectors will complete their investigation into "pending credible allegations" of chemical weapons use in Syria's civil war. The team consists of six people, led by Swedish expert Ake Sellstrom. They will travel by road to Syria later Wednesday.
All officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to media.
The U.S. and its allies say President Bashar Assad's regime was behind the attack.
Washington says the attack killed 1,400 people. Activist groups gave significantly lower death tolls, but still in the hundreds.
