Destroyed World War Two weapons are displayed during a media demonstration at the Society for the Disposal of Chemical Weapons and Ordnance (GEKA) in Munster, March 5, 2014. The state owned GEKA is the only German company which is able to destroy chemical munitions and explosives. Syria has shipped out about a third of its chemical weapons, including mustard gas, for destruction abroad, the global chemical arms watchdog, the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) said on Tuesday. They are to be transferred to the U.S. ship MV Cape Ray and commercial destruction facilities in the United Kingdom and Germany, as part of a Russian-U.S. deal struck last year.
