Rotterdam: The UN experts, who probed Syria`s chemical weapon attack, reached Netherlands on Saturday.

The experts will test the samples collected from the site near Damascus suburb where the August 21 chemical weapon attack took place. Samples will be checked for traces of poison gas.

The samples are expected to be sent to well-equipped laboratories across the Europe.

The UN inspectors had ended their visit in Syria earlier in the day and reached Netherlands.

While the US has alleged Assad government`s involvement in the chemical attacks, Russia has asked the former to provide evidence before accusing Assad regime.
