BEIRUT, Lebanon -- A United Nations team arrived in Damascus on Sunday to begin a long-awaited investigation into the alleged use of chemical weapons in the civil war in Syria.
The United Nations said in a statement that the team would begin its work on Monday, though many questions remained about how effectively it would be able to address one of the most charged issues in the conflict.
Mr. Assad's government finally agreed to allow the investigators in after months of negotiations over where they could work. While the United Nations originally pushed for unfettered access, the final agreement will allow the investigators to visit three sites: Khan al-Assal and two others that have not been made public.
