Damascus: Syria's foreign minister says a second trip by U.N. experts to the site of an alleged chemical weapons attack has been delayed because of disputes between rebel groups.





Walid al-Moallem says rebels in the capital's suburbs known as eastern Ghouta have postponed the visit by one day because gunmen could not reach agreement about guaranteeing the team's safety. He did not elaborate.

Speaking at a press conference in Damascus Tuesday, al-Moallem also said that accusations by the U.S. administration that the Syrian regime likely used chemical weapons were “categorically false.”
