Video: OPCW convoy attacked en route to Kafr Zita, Syria


A convoy of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) was attacked in unclear circumstances in Syria on May 27. The OPCW investigators and UN staff were going to the site of an alleged chlorine gas attack in Kafr Zita. SANA, the Syrian public news agency, reported that the team members were abducted; the OPCW released a statement confirming the attack but saying that the team was safe and en route back to base. The footage shows the team in the company of what looks to be a group of people, some armed, in the town of Halfaya. Credit: YouTube/National Rally for Free Hama
