Umatilla Chemical Depot to Start New Phase of Chemical Weapons Destruction

Umatilla, Oregon - Officials at the Umatilla Chemical Depot say the next phase of chemical weapons destruction is v-x nerve agent.

The last of the depot's g-b-sarin nerve agent weapons were destroyed in July.

Now workers at the incinerator facility have been getting ready to handle "v-x."

They will begin by destroying over 14- thousand m- 55 rockets filled with "v-x" as early as next month.
