Syria’s chemical weapons: U.N. to release report Monday

(CNN) – The world is expected to learn Monday what really happened the day 1,400 people were allegedly gassed to death outside the Syrian capital of Damascus.

A report by U.N. weapons inspectors probably will be made public Monday morning, two diplomats told CNN.

The inspectors were sent to Syria to figure out whether a chemical weapons attack took place on August 21.

But to many, the answer is a foregone conclusion.

Both Syrian rebels and the regime have said chemical weapons have been used in the bloody civil war.

And videos showing rows of bodies with no visible injuries and children gasping for air seem to corroborate both sides’ claims.

The most important question, who may be responsible, will go unanswered.

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has already said this report will not assign blame.
