UN experts have claimed they possess convincing evidence confirming that chemical weapons were used in missile attacks against the Damascus suburb of Ghouta on August 21.

The evidence, recorded in a report to a closed-door session of the UN Security Council on Monday, was the result of investigations into 14 suspected instances of use of chemical arms on that day, Interfax reported.

Ecological, chemical and medical tests carried out by the experts offered substantial evidence that surface-to-surface missiles used in shelling Ghouta contained sarin, the report said.

This means extensive use of chemical weapons against civilians, including children, it said.
