15 December 2013 Last updated at 02:44 GMT

Two warships from Denmark and Norway are preparing to sail for Syria, to assist with the removal of the country's chemical weapons.

They will accompany two cargo ships which will receive the stockpiles of weapons, before transferring at least some of them to a US ship for destruction.

Syria has agreed to surrender its most deadly chemical weapons by the end of 2013.
