2 Attacks on Syrian Convoys Transporting Chemicals

A United Nations reported released Thursday said there were two attempted attacks on Syrian convoys transporting chemical weapons late last month. The report was based on Syrian authorities who informed the international mission overseeing the removal and destruction of its toxic arsenal of the attacks.

The monthly report to the UN Security Council of the joint mission of the United Nations and the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons said the attempted attacks were on January 27. It gave no details on the location of the convoys.
