UK in a spot over Syria chemicals export

Government under pressure to explain how it allowed export of chemicals, which could have been used to make weapons.

    The British government is under pressure to explain how it agreed to allow the export of chemicals to Syria, which could have been used to make weapons.

    The department responsible insists the shipment was never sent, but it is raising uncomfortable questions about Britain's commitment to keeping dangerous materials away from its enemies, and has led to allegations of hypocrisy.
