A convoy of chemical weapons inspectors and UN staff that was travelling to the site of an alleged chlorine gas attack in Syria has come under attack.

The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) said they were all safe and well, and were travelling back to their operating base.

It did not say whether they had been kidnapped in Hama province, as the Syrian government earlier claimed. Jim Muir reports.
