US Defence Secretary Leon Panetta says that the Syrian government has moved some of its chemical weapons to safety as it battles rebel forces.

He said there was intelligence that there had been "limited movement" to secure the chemicals, but that "the major sites still remain in place".

Syria has admitted to having a large stockpile of chemical weapons.

US President Barack Obama has warned Damascus it would be held accountable if it uses them.
