Investigators prevented from visiting scene of Syria attack

Syrian and Russian authorities on Monday prevented independent investigators from going to the scene of a suspected chemical attack in Douma, the head of the chemical watchdog group said, according to The Associated Press.

A team of chemical experts from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), based in The Hague, arrived in Damascus hours after Saturday’s joint air strikes by the U.S., Britain and France which came in response to the attack.
