Syria's declared equipment for producing chemical weapons has been destroyed, the global chemical weapons watchdog OPCW says.

Syria's declared equipment for producing, mixing and filling chemical weapons has been destroyed a day before the deadline set by the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), informs BBC.

OCPW inspectors were sent to Syria following allegations, denied by the government, that its forces had used chemical weapons in civilian areas.

The inspections were agreed between Russia and the US after Washington threatened to use force in Syria.
