      UK Protects Syrian Rebels Against Chemical Weapons


      The UK is equipping Syrian opposition forces with protective equipment against chemical and biological attack, Foreign Secretary William Hague said on Tuesday, according to a BBC report.

      It includes 5,000 gas escape hoods, nerve-agent pre-treatment tablets and chemical-weapons detector paper. The equipment is a "gift" from the UK to the Syrian National Coalition.
