Description

Syria is collecting hundreds of metric tons of chemical agents from across the country at its Mediterranean port of Latakia. From there, an international convoy is taking the chemicals to the Italian port of Gioia Tauro, where they will be transferred to a U.S. ship, the MV Cape Ray. Once the chemicals are on board, the Cape Ray will move to international waters. It will remain there as it neutralizes the chemicals, using two mobile hydrolysis units that it is carrying.
