The process of destroying Syria's chemical weapons began today as inspectors from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons and the UN sought to destroy the country's arsenal in compliance with international demands. A UN spokesperson said:
Under the supervision of experts from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, supported by the United Nations, Syrian personnel used cutting torches and angle grinders to destroy or disable a range of items.
This included missile warheads, aerial bombs and mixing and filling equipment. The process will continue in the coming days.
