Chemical weapons watchdog not sure when inspectors can go to Douma, Syria

Ambassador Peter Wilson told reporters that OPCW Director-General Ahmet Üzümcü said the departure of a team of inspectors was delayed after an incident in which an advance U.N. security detail performing reconnaissance in Douma was forced to withdraw after being fired upon.
