MOSCOW - Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said on Wednesday that UN investigators who compiled a report on an August 21 poison gas attack in Syria did not pay enough attention to evidence provided by the Syrian government.

Speaking to reporters in Damascus, Ryabkov said evidence that Syrian authorities gave his delegation had been handed over to the UN investigators earlier but was not sufficiently reflected in the report they issued on Monday.
