BEIRUT - Unidentified snipers shot at and damaged a vehicle being used by UN chemical weapons investigators in Damascus on Monday as they sought to reach the site of a suspected poison gas attack, a UN spokesman said.

"The first vehicle of the Chemical Weapons Investigation Team was deliberately shot at multiple times by unidentified snipers in the buffer zone area," the spokesman said, adding the car was no longer serviceable and a replacement vehicle was being obtained.
