(AP) A U.N. inspectors report on last month's chemical weapons attack in Syria suggests the rockets containing the nerve agent sarin were fired from the regime's elite military units based in mountains overlooking Damascus.


A senior U.N. diplomat in New York says details on scale of the attack, the rockets used and trajectory data cited in the report make it "abundantly clear" that the Syrian regime was behind the attack. The diplomat said: "There isn't a shred of evidence in the other direction."


The diplomat spoke on condition of anonymity because some of the material was from private meetings.


A Human Rights Watch report also said Wednesday the presumed flight path of the rockets cited by the U.N. inspectors' report led back to a Republican Guard base in the same area.
