Investigator: UN Has Evidence that Rebels Used Sarin


One of the lead human rights investigators for the United Nations said on Sunday that UN investigators have gathered testimony indicating that rebel forces have used the nerve agent sarin.

The United Nations independent commission of inquiry on Syria has not yet seen evidence of government forces having used chemical weapons, said commission member Carla Del Ponte in an interview with Swiss television. Del Ponte gave no details as to when or where sarin may have been used.
