Dismantling of Chemical Weapons Begins in Syria

Damascus, October 7 (RHC)-- A team of inspectors from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) has begun the process of destroying Syria's stockpile of chemical weapons and the machinery used to produce them.

The OPCW team arrived in Damascus on last week to verify details of the arsenal turned over by the Syrian government. On Sunday, speaking on condition of anonymity, an official on the joint OPCW-UN delegation said: "The first day of destruction and disabling is over and missile warheads, aerial bombs, along with mobile and static mixing and filling units, were dealt with. Work continues tomorrow and in the next few days."
