AMSTERDAM/ANKARA, - UN-appointed chemical weapons inspectors, blocked from entering Syria, are in Turkey to gather information about possible use of the munitions in the country's civil war, officials said on Thursday.

Members of the team assembled by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon had been on standby in Cyprus since April, unable to enter Syria even as claims of chemical weapons attacks there were reported by Western governments.
