Syria chemical destruction deadline still possible

ROTA - A spokesman for the world's chemical weapons watchdog says if Syria can remove all its ingredients for making poison gas and nerve agent from the country by the end of the month, an ambitious June 30 deadline for destroying the chemicals should be met.

 

It remains to be seen if Damascus can remove the chemicals by the end of April. It has taken months to ship out just over half of the 1,300-metric ton stockpile. (AP)
