U.N. inspectors will travel to Syria imminently to investigate reports of chemical weapon attacks during the country's two-year civil war, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said on Wednesday.

"As agreed with the Government of Syria, the team will remain in the country to conduct its activities, including on-site visits, for a period of up to 14 days, extendable upon mutual consent," Ban's press office said in a statement.

The United Nations has been negotiating the details of the trip with the Syrian government for the past two weeks.
