International chemical weapon inspectors arrive in Douma, Syria, said Russian Foreign Ministry on Saturday, according to agencies.

The Fact-Finding Mission (FFM) team from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) allegedlly left Damascus for Douma where the suspected chemical attack occurred on Saturday.

In a statement of OPCW on Wednesday, they “do not know when the FFM team can be deployed to Douma.”

The team was carried out last Saturday when independent experts from the OPCW arrived in Damascus.
