The American ship MV Cape Ray will collect and destroy mustard gas, raw materials for sarin nerve gas and tons of other highly toxic chemicals that form part of Syria’s chemical weapons program. If Syria can remove all its ingredients for making poison gas and nerve agent from the country by the end of the month, an ambitious June 30 deadline for destroying the chemicals should be met, a spokesman for the world’s chemical weapons watchdog said Thursday.
