Syria UN chemical task 'feasible'

DAMASCUS - The chief UN weapons inspector says it will be difficult to find and destroy all of Syria's chemical weapons, but he believes it is achievable.

Ake Sellstrom told the BBC much depended on whether Damascus and the opposition were willing to negotiate.

He said his team concluded after a visit to Syria that the nerve agent sarin was used in an attack in a Damascus area on 21 August.

The UN Security Council is now trying to agree a resolution on the issue.
