(AP) The chief of the global chemical weapons watchdog says Syria has declared 41 facilities at 23 chemical sites where it stored approximately 1,300 tons of chemical precursors and agents and 1,230 unfilled munitions.


Ahmet Uzumcu said in his first report to the Security Council, obtained Monday by The Associated Press, that inspectors overseeing the destruction of Syria's chemical weapons stockpile had corroborated information provided by Syria at 37 of the 41 facilities.


But the chemical watchdog said inspectors couldn't visit two sites because of security risks, which meant an Oct. 27 deadline to visit all declared sites was missed.


Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said inspectors are expected to meet a Nov. 1 deadline to destroy Syria's capacity to produce chemical weapons except possibly at those two sites.
