Syria's sarin precursor chemicals destroyed

The US cargo ship MV Cape Ray arrives in the port of Gioia Tauro, southern Italy, early on July 1, 2014All Syria’s precursor chemicals that could be used to make deadly sarin gas have been destroyed on board a US Navy ship on the Mediterranean Sea, the world’s chemical watchdog said on Wednesday. “All 581 metric tonnes of a precursor chemical for sarin gas that were removed from Syria and trans-loaded onto the US vessel Cape Ray, have been destroyed with neutralisation technology on board the ship,” the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons said, confirming an Pentagon report on Tuesday. The precursor chemical, called methylphosphonyl difluoride, or DF, was neutralised with two field hydrolysis systems installed on the Cape Ray, the Hague-based watchdog said.
