The global chemical weapons watchdog says it has now adopted a detailed plan for the destruction of Syria's stockpile by mid-2014.

Yesterday, had been the deadline for the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons to agree a final destruction timetable.

The deadline was set under a US-Russia brokered plan backed by the UN.

The plan was adopted despite an earlier setback, when Albania rejected a request to host the destruction.

Where the stockpile will be transported to be destroyed remains unclear.
