(AP) Chemical weapons inspectors who will oversee Syria's destruction of its chemical weapons say their first priority is to help the country scrap its ability to manufacture such weapons by a Nov. 1 deadline using every means possible.

The inspectors said Sunday that may include smashing mixing equipment with sledgehammers, blowing up delivery missiles, driving tanks over empty shells or filling them with concrete, and running machines without lubricant so they seize up.

On Friday, the U.N. Security Council ordered the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons to help Syria destroy its chemical weapons by mid-2014.

On Sunday, inspectors met with media to explain their plan.

The organization had the inspectors speak on condition of anonymity out of concern for their safety in Syria during its civil war.
