BEIRUT: U.N. disarmament envoy Angela Kane arrived Friday in the Lebanese capital from neighbouring Syria and immediately left for Istanbul, a Lebanese security source told The Daily Star.
According to the source, she crossed the border alone.
The rest of the U.N. chemical inspection team are expected to cross the border on Saturday.
Kane was sent to Damascus on Saturday by U.N. chief Ban Ki-moon to press for an inquiry into alleged chemical weapons attacks near the Syrian capital on August 21.
