UN inspectors are winding up their mission to Syria, attempting to determine whether or not chemical weapons were used in last week’s attacks in the suburbs of Damascus. On Friday the inspectors went to a military hospital where the government says soldiers hit in a chemical weapons assault are being treated. Damascus residents say the Syrian army is moving troops and equipment into residential areas in anticipation of a U.S. military strike aimed at punishing the regime for its alleged use of chemical weapons.
