Russia calls on UN team to check other Syria sites

Russia's foreign ministry has asked the UN to continue with its inspection of places where chemical weapons might have been used in Syria. UN chief Ban Ki-Moon said Thursday that the organization's chemical weapons team will complete its inspection on Friday, and leave Syria on Saturday.


But Russia's Foreign Ministry Spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said in a statement Thursday the UN team should inspect three other locations, including a suburb of Aleppo, where the government in Damascus alleges the rebels have used poisoned gas. (AP)
