US proposes destruction unit for Syria's chemical weapons

AMSTERDAM/WASHINGTON - The Pentagon is suggesting the world's chemical weapons watchdog use a US-made mobile destruction unit in Syria to neutralize the country's toxic stockpile, officials told Reuters.
It gave a briefing on the unit on Tuesday to officials at the Hague-based Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, who are deciding what technology to use for the ambitious chemical weapons destruction plan, two officials said.
