Syria weapons deadline looms

The Syrian government has until midnight on Sunday to hand over its entire chemical stockpile, if it is to meet the deadline agreed by Damascus and the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW).

The deadline comes as the United States has expressed concern over reports that Syrian forces have used chlorine gas as a weapon.

Anna Holligan reports from The Hague.
