Video released of chemical weapons inspections in Syria

Syrian TV released footage of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) members inspecting what is claimed to be a Syrian chemical site. The date of recording and the place where it was filmed were not released. The inspectors have been tasked with overseeing the destruction of Syria's chemical weapons in the middle of a civil war. The OPCW inspectors, who are from the Netherlands-based chemical weapons watchdog, have about nine months to complete their mission. The deadline is the tightest that the experts from the OPCW have ever faced and the first amid ongoing fighting.
