A global chemical weapons watchdog have released an interim report stating that "various chlorinated organic chemicals" were found at the site in Syria where a chemical attack is suspected of being carried out in April.
A fact-finding mission by the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) warned it was too early to come to conclusions about the suspected attack on the town of Douma, saying "work by the team to establish the significance of these results is ongoing".
At the same time, the investigators reported, based on initial results, that "no organophosphorus nerve agents or their degradation products" were detected in samples taken from people allegedly exposed or in the environment.
The OPCW is investigating the suspected April 7 chemical attack on Douma, a town near the Syrian capital, Damascus.
The United States, Britain and France blamed Syrian Government forces and launched punitive airstrikes. Syria denied responsibility.
