Chemical Weapons Watchdog Probes Chlorine Attack In Syria

The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons said the Syrian government had agreed to the mission. The U.S. said last week that there were signs that a "toxic industrial chemical," possibly chlorine, was used in Syria during the last month and was investigating claims that Assad's regime was responsible.
