Chemical Weapons Inspections in Syria Could Begin Tuesday

THE HAGUE, NETHERLANDSThe global chemical weapons watchdog is calling for inspections of Syria's chemical arsenal to begin by Tuesday.

The draft decision of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons obtained by The Associated Press also authorizes the body to inspect "any other site identified by a State Party as having been involved in the Syrian chemical weapons program, unless deemed unwarranted by the Director-General."

That goes beyond usual practice as the organization only inspects sites that have been declared by member states.
