Three Quarters of Syria's Chemicals Destroyed


Almost three quarters of Syria’s entire chemical stockpile has been destroyed, the world’s chemical weapons watchdog said on Thursday, after another 190 tonnes of agents were incinerated in Britain.

“The OPCW confirmed today (Thursday) that 74.2 percent of Syria’s entire stockpile of chemicals has now been destroyed,” The Organization for the Prevention of Chemical Weapons said in a statement quoted by AFP.
