Norway rejects US request to destroy Syria's chemical weapons arsenal

Norway's foreign minister says his country has turned down a U.S. request to receive Syria's chemical weapons for destruction.

Boerge Brende on Friday said Norway doesn't have the capabilities to handle the request by the deadlines given so there was no point in continuing the discussions.

Brende said the U.S. is looking at other alternatives but didn't give details.
