UNITED NATIONS (AP) - The U.N. says its chief chemical weapons inspector has turned over his team's report on last month's alleged poison gas attack in Syria to Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.

U.N. spokesman Martin Nesirky said the report was transmitted Sunday and the secretary-general will brief a closed session of the U.N. Security Council on its contents Monday morning. He will also brief the 193-member General Assembly later that day.

The inspection team led by Swedish expert Ake Sellstrom was mandated to report on whether chemical weapons were used in the Aug. 21 attack in the Damascus suburbs and, if so, which chemical agents were used - not on who was responsible.

The secretary-general said Friday that he believes there will be "an overwhelming report" that chemical weapons were used in the attack.
