French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said on Thursday that UN inspectors who investigated an August 21 chemical weapons attack in Syria would "probably" publish their report on Monday.

Diplomats have said the report is unlikely to pin blame on either Syrian President Bashar Assad or rebel forces in the country, but that it would contain enough detail to suggest which party was responsible.

Fabius said there was little doubt that Assad's forces, which he said possessed 1,000 metric tons of chemical weapons, were behind the attack.
