The US says only around 4% of the chemical weapons declared by the Syrian government has been removed.

Defence Secretary Chuck Hagel said he was "concerned" that the UN-backed plan to remove Syria's chemical arsenal was behind schedule.

Hagel told reporters in Poland that Damascus "had to take responsibility for fulfilling its commitment".

Delegates from Syria's government and opposition have attended peace talks in Geneva for a sixth day.
