Syrian Situation Could Delay Chemical Weapons Plan

Sigrid Kaag, the head of the mission charged with destroying Syria's chemical weapons said on Wednesday that serious security issues on key roads in the country may delay the moving of the most dangerous chemical agents.

Kaag told reporters "there are factors beyond our control" which could affect the schedule to destroy Syria's entire chemical weapons program by mid-2014.
