UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has called for weapons inspectors to be given time to determine whether chemical weapons were used.

Speaking at the Hague, Ban urged members of the UN Security Council to look for a diplomatic solution, saying: “Give peace a chance, give diplomacy a chance, stop fighting and start talking.”

His words may have fallen on deaf ears as American, European and Middle East allies have already firmly pinned the blame on President Assad’s forces.

Syria says it believes that Britain, France and the US have helped “terrorists” use chemical weapons in Syria, in order to justify foreign intervention and warned that the same groups would soon use them against Europe.

In Damascus, inspectors have finished their second visit to a suspected chemical weapons strike in the Mouadamiya suburb.

Hundreds of people are reported to have died in the attack on August 21.
