Syria 'genuinely worried' extremists could get chemical weapons
Syria is "genuinely worried" that some countries might equip extremist groups with chemical weapons and then claim they were used by the Syrian government, the country's UN envoy said in a letter to UN chief Ban Ki-moon and the Security Council.


Syria's UN Ambassador Bashar Ja'afari also accused the US government of supporting "terrorists" in Syria and waging a campaign that claims Syria could use chemical weapons in the 20-month-old civil war that has killed at least 40,000. (Reuters)
