UN chemical weapons inspectors are investigating whether three chemical attacks were carried out in Syria after the 21 August Damascus incident that sparked threats of US military action.

A UN statement said that, in all, seven alleged incidents of chemical weapons use were under investigation.

The UN team currently in Syria is set to complete its work on Monday.

A UN resolution on making Syria's stockpile safe is expected soon, after the US and Russia agreed the text.

Experts from the world's chemical weapons watchdog, the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), are expected to begin inspecting Syria's stockpile by Tuesday, a draft agreement has said.

The text is due to be voted on at a meeting in The Hague later on Friday.
