NEW YORK - United Nations experts plan to go to Iran on Sunday to investigate reports that Iraq used chemical weapons to expel some 7,000 Shia Muslims from the southern marshes, Reuter reports.

Diplomatic sources said a small team, including physicians, would interview refugees and might take blood tests from alleged victims. The team also wants to pinpoint the area where the alleged incidents took place so that UN arms inspectors can conduct further checks.
