^UN gets new info on alleged chemical use by Syria<
UNITED NATIONS (AP) _ Britain has sent a letter to
Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon with new information of alleged
chemical weapons use by the Syrian government.
Britain's U.N. Ambassador Mark Lyall Grant said Thursday that
his government has continued to update the secretary-general and
the head of the U.N. team Ban appointed to investigate the alleged
chemical weapons attacks with new information.
``I sent a further notification to the secretary-general last
week,'' he told several reporters.
Lyall Grant said Britain believes all the alleged chemical
weapons attacks are by the government. He said the British
government has no evidence that the opposition has obtained
chemical weapons or used them.
Syria asked the U.N. to investigate an alleged chemical weapons
attack in Aleppo in March but is refusing to broaden the
investigation to other alleged incidents.
