UN to investigate chemical weapons in Syria

Despite a UN report on chemical weapons, disagreements among members is likely to lead to a deadlock.

    The US and UK say there is growing evidence of chemical warfare being waged in Syria.

    But US President Barack Obama says that he will wait for the results of a UN investigation before he takes any action.

    However, Al Jazeera's Diplomatic Editor James Bays, reporting from the UN, says that disagreements within the organisation may yet impede international intervention efforts.
