The latest from inside Syria

U.N. inspectors in Syria today gained access to the site of the suspected chemical attack on the outskirts of Damascus today. According to CNN's Fred Pleitgen, they were not only targeted by sniper fire, but their hotel was also struck by mortars this morning. Pleitgen is the only western network correspondent in Damascus. He is also reporting that the Syrian military is launching artillery strikes that are targeting the same areas where rebels say the chemical attack occurred.
