A UN team of experts tasked with identifying those responsible for chemical attacks in Syria will begin in-depth investigations on the ground in early March, the head of the panel said Monday. Virginia Gamba told reporters after meeting with the UN Security Council that "security permitting", two teams plan to carry out field visits in the coming weeks. Gamba heads the Joint Investigative Mechanism (JIM) set up in August by the council after reports surfaced of chlorine gas attacks on three villages in Syria that left 13 dead.
