This still image taken from an amateur video off a social media website on August 30, 2013 purportedly shows a man (R) carrying a young woman up a flight of stairs after an attack that according to the video took place on August 26, 2013, at a hospital said to be in the western suburb of Uorm al-Kubra in Aleppo. According to a doctor at the hospital, the chemical attack at an area close to the hospital was similar to napalm, which caused burns on the victims. Reuters

A team of U.N. experts left their Damascus hotel for a third day of on-site investigations into apparent chemical weapons attacks on the outskirts of the capital. Activists and doctors in rebel-held areas said the six-car U.N. convoy was scheduled to visit the scene of strikes in the eastern Ghouta suburbs.

Syrian state television said soldiers found chemical materials on Saturday in tunnels that had been used by rebels, rejecting blame for a nerve gas attack that killed hundreds this week and heightened Western calls for foreign intervention.
