Report: Syria has loaded components of sarin gas into bombs

Wednesday, December 05, 2012

A U.S. official confirmed to ABC News Wednesday night that Syria has loaded components of sarin gas into bombs on or near airfields.

With a civil war raging in the Middle Eastern nation, the fear is that the country's dictator Bashar Assad could use the nerve agent or other chemical weapons against his people.

ABC News reported that there has been no movement towards using the bombs.

The U.S. and the United Nations have warned of huge consequences if Assad does.
