A team from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) visited a site in Douma, Syria, on Saturday “to collect samples for analysis” in connection with an alleged chemical weapons attack.

The OPCW announced the visit in a statement, saying it “will evaluate the situation and consider future steps including another possible visit to Douma.”

Inspectors from OPCW has been delayed for a week in Damascus before they could visit the town where the alleged attack occurred on April 7. Security concerns had been keeping international experts from inspecting the site, CBS News reported.

An advance security team from the United Nations withdrew from Douma after coming under fire on Tuesday at one of the sites that were to be inspected. There was also a small explosion at the site. That further delayed the international weapons inspectors, who arrived in Damascus last weekend to try to determine what happened in early April.
