Days after a suspected chemical attack killed dozens of Syrians, the government says it'll help with an investigation into the incident.

The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons announced Tuesday it will send a fact-finding team to Syria. The country's foreign ministry told the Associated Press Syria will help with the investigation.

As we've reported, Syria denies being involved in the chemical attack.

And yet, several leaders from around the world have denounced the attack and blamed the Syrian government.

The watchdog group said its team will deploy to Syria "shortly."
