NATO to send missiles to Turkey

NATO has announced this morning, patriot surface-to-air missiles will be deployed to Turkey to protect it from any spillover of the civil war in neighbouring Syria.

The organisation has expressed grave concerns over reports Syria may be considering the use of chemical weapons and says Turkey, as a NATO nation, needs the support.

But NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen says it’s not just the threat of chemical weapons that Turkey faces, but general warfare as well.

It comes as civil war in Syria continues, with 30 people killed by the shelling of a school in Damascus, most of them children.
