Disarmament experts from the international chemical weapons watchdog have begun destroying Syrias arsenal.

 

The operation is being carried out by a team from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.

 

The mission was established under a UN resolution passed after agreement between Russia and the US.

 

The resolution followed international outrage at a chemical weapons attack near Damascus in August.
