Report: UK OK'd Chem Sales to Syria Since War Outbreak


The British weekly, “The Sunday Mail”, reported yesterday (Sunday) that Britain has been granting export licenses to sell to Syria chemicals that comprise nerve gas, even ten months since the outbreak of violent hostilities in that country.

According to the report, licenses were issued to export potassium fluoride and sodium fluoride, which are both used in the production of sarin gas.
