• UN cites progress in probe of Syria chemical attacks


    UNITED NATIONS, United States: A UN team is making progress in its investigation of nine chemical weapons attacks in Syria but it has yet to identify the perpetrators, a report said on Monday (Tuesday in Manila). The Joint Investigative Mechanism (JIM) set up by the Security Council last year appealed for more information from world governments including from the Syrian regime to determine those responsible for the attacks. The JIM is the most concrete UN effort to date to establish some accountability in the five-year war that has left more than 280,000 dead and displaced over 11 million people.
