    Syria has rejected calls by the UN which wants to widen its investigation into the use of chemical weapons in the country.

    There is currently an advance team of UN-backed experts in Cyprus waiting for permission to enter, but the government has asked the United Nations to only look into a chemical attack in March near Aleppo which it blamed on the rebels.
