    A UN inquiry team investigating the use of chemical weapons in Syria will be disbanded, after Russia vetoed a resolution to extend its mandate.

    The move scrapped a Japanese effort to allow the inquiry to continue for 30 days, to give time for negotiations on a wider compromise.

    Al Jazeera's James Bays reports from New York.
