Global watchdog approves Syria disarmament plan

THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) - The world's chemical weapons watchdog has approved a disarmament plan for Syria.

The decision late Friday paves the way for the U.N. Security Council to adopt a resolution enshrining the plan, which will make it legally binding.

The resolution, already agreed on by the five veto-wielding members, is expected to pass easily, breaking a nearly three-year deadlock on the council, which had been deeply divided on Syria.
