      EU Gives OPCW Money to Destroy Syria's Chemicals

      The European Union signed over 12 million euros to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) on Monday, to help pay for the dismantling of Syria's chemical weapons program, AFP reports.

      The funds had been pledged to the OPCW in December by EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton to help cover the 25-million to 30-million euro cost of destroying Syria's chemical materials.
