DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) — Shops in Syria's capital are filled with people stocking up on bread, canned food and other necessities ahead of what are expected to be U.S. military strikes. But there appear to be no signs of panic or food shortages.

U.N. inspectors, meanwhile, have been at work again in the areas targeted by last week's alleged chemical weapons attack. The U.N. said yesterday that the inspectors would wrap up their investigation today and leave Syria for the Netherlands Saturday.
