United Nations inspectors have revealed that rockets used in the Syrian chemical weapons attack bore Russian writing.
The discovery of Cyrillic characters was disclosed in a long-awaited report, which also said there was clear and compelling evidence that the rockets carried nerve agent sarin.
According to the Mirror, reading the report, UN chief Ban Ki-moon said that the attack in Damascus was a war crime and the worst chemical weapons strike for 25 years.
The report, however, did not blame Syrian President Bashar al-Assad for the attack. Britain and France seized on the fresh evidence that the tyrant was responsible for the August 21 attack that killed hundreds.
Foreign Secretary William Hague said that the very damning findings were fully consistent with Britain’s view that the Assad regime was behind the atrocity, the report added.
