At least three victims of the alleged chemical weapons attack in Damascus on Thursday were smuggled to Jordan in order to collect samples of their blood and urine to help determine which agent of gas was used in the attack, The Guardian reported on Saturday.

Meanwhile UN inspectors that arrived in Damascus to investigate the allegations of a chemical weapons attack were denied access to affected areas of the city for a second day.
