UNITED NATIONS - UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon received on Sunday the report of the UN fact-finding group on the alleged use of chemical weapons in Syria. He will brief the UN Security Council on the findings on Monday morning, UN spokesman Martin Nesirky told reporters here Sunday.     

"The report by the United Nations Mission to Investigate Allegations of the Use of Chemical Weapons in the Syrian Arab Republic has been turned over to the secretary-general," Nesirky said in a note emailed to reporters here.

"It was transmitted today, 15 September, to the secretary- general by Professor Ake Sellstrom, the head of the Mission, and the secretary-general will provide it to the Member States tomorrow morning," the spokesman said.

"On Monday morning, the secretary-general will brief the Security Council on the report during its closed consultations," he added.
