United Nations chemical weapons inspectors in Syria to investigate allegations of chemical and biological weapons use during the country's ongoing civil war departed from Damascus on Monday, witnesses said, ending their second mission in two months.

A convoy of four United Nations vehicles carrying the team set out from an hotel in central Damascus at around 1.30 p.m. local time (1030 GMT), and was expected to arrive in Beirut later Monday.

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.
