Syria's declared equipment for producing, mixing and filling chemical weapons has been destroyed.

This comes a day before the deadline set by the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.

Inspectors were sent to Syria following allegations that government forces had used chemical weapons in civilian areas, killing hundreds of people.

The government denies the accusations and blames rebel forces.

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