BEIRUT - UN chemical weapons inspectors investigating allegations of chemical and biological weapons use during Syria's civil war left Damascus on Monday after their second mission in two months, witnesses said.

A convoy of four United Nations vehicles carrying the team departed from a central Damascus hotel around 1.30 p.m. (1030 GMT), and was expected to arrive in Beirut later in the day.

Another team of UN experts, tasked with starting the process of verifying and eliminating Syria's chemical weapons, is expected to arrive in Syria this week.

Their mission, endorsed by the UN Security Council last week, was hammered out by Washington and Moscow after an August 21 chemical weapons attack in Damascus prompted threats of Western air strikes on Syria.
