      Syria Misses Deadline on Most Dangerous Chemicals

      The first milestone in plans to destroy Syria's chemical weapons arsenal by mid 2014 was missed on Tuesday, as shipments of the country's most dangerous chemicals did not make it to the Mediterranean port of Latakia, from there to be shipped to their destruction.

      The December 31 deadline for the most deadly weapons was reportedly missed due to bad weather, constantly changing lines of battle, and road closures, reports BBC. These weapons include toxins that can be used to make the nerve agents sarin gas, VX gas and others.
