Analysis of samples taken by UN inspectors in Syria investigating an alleged use of chemical weapons could take "up to three weeks," the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) said on Saturday, AFP reported.

"The evidence collected by the team will now undergo laboratory analysis and technical evaluation. These procedures may take up to three weeks for completion in a systematic, orderly and objective manner," the group said in The Hague, where the UN team arrived on Saturday.
