A team of disarmament experts began the process of destroying Syria's chemical weapons and production facilities on Sunday, a source in the international mission said.
The source said members of the team from the UN and the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) "have left for a site where they are beginning verification and destruction."
