The international community has warned Syria that the use of chemical weapons in the country's civil war will result in serious consequences. Nato Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said, at a meeting of the alliance in Brussels yesterday, the use of chemical weapons would be completely unacceptable. Reports suggest the Syrian government is mixing chemicals used to make sarin, a deadly nerve agent, to use against rebels. RFI spoke to Olivier Lepick, a researcher on chemical and biological weapons at the Foundation for Strategic Studies, here in Paris
