DAMASCUS, Syria - (AP) -- Syria's government is accusing rebels of firing at a U.N. team that's investigating the alleged use of chemical weapons in Damascus.
But the rebels say a pro-government militia was behind the attack.
A U.N. spokesman says the vehicle was "deliberately shot at multiple times" by unidentified snipers in Damascus.
Activists say the team later arrived in a western suburb of Damascus, one of the areas where last week's attack allegedly occurred. They said the team has been meeting with doctors and victims at a makeshift hospital.
Today's shooting incident came amid mounting support for an international military response, if it's confirmed that President Bashar Assad's troops used chemical weapons.
The United States has said there is little doubt that Assad's regime was responsible for the attack. Activists say hundreds of people were killed.
