Chemical watchdog says US to destroy Syria stockpile at sea

THE HAGUE (AFP) - The United States has offered to destroy Syria's chemical stockpile and will do so on a ship at sea, the world's chemical watchdog said on Saturday.

"The Director-General stated that the neutralisation operations will be conducted on a US vessel at sea using hydrolysis," the Hague-based Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons said in a statement.
