Syria crisis: Declared chemical weapons equipment destroyed by deadline - OPCW
Syria's declared equipment for the production of chemical weapons has been destroyed by the deadline set, the international watchdog has confirmed.
The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) was sent to Syria following allegations that government forces had used chemical weapons in civilian areas - a claim the regime denies.
But the BBC's Jim Muir says talks between the government and the rebels could still be delayed.
