Protest at Greek NATO base over destruction of Syrian chemicals

Greeks gather at Athens' central Syntagma square during a rally called by organisations against the UN program designed to destroy Syrian chemical weapons in the MediterraneanHundreds of campaigners closed a road to a NATO naval base in Greece on Saturday, protesting against the destruction of Syrian chemical weapons in the region. The blockade — which is due to last for three days — has seen around 250 protesters gather at the Souda base, near Chania in western Crete. Hundreds of metric tonnes of chemical agents were handed over by Syria as part of an international agreement to avoid Western air strikes after a chemical attack in the country caused international outrage. “Just imagine what a leak of chemicals could mean for the Mediterranean Sea,” Pavlos Pollakis, the mayor of the region of Sfakia, told the Athens News Agency.
