A second team of inspectors will be sent to Syria to help those already working there to destroy the state's stockpile of toxic munitions, the global chemical weapons watchdog said. This comes as Damascus releases of footage of the first mission at work. On Tuesday, the destruction of the poison gas arsenal entered its third day. RT has obtained video of experts working in Syria. On the same day the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) said the first team will be rienforced by another mission. "The OPCW Technical Secretariat in The Hague will deploy a second team of inspectors for the mission in Syria that will augment the advance team of OPCW experts, who have been in Syria since 1 October conducting verification and destruction activities," a statement on the official website read. The Syrian government agreed to put its chemical arms under international control for elimination after a sarin gas attack on the outskirts of Damascus that killed hundreds of people on August 21. http://rt.com/
