The Gioia Tauro port in southern Italy. Cargo containers carrying hundreds of tons of Syrian chemical weapons were loaded onto a U.S. cargo ship for destruction at sea, one of the final phases of the international effort to rid Syria of its chemical weapon stockpile. The chemicals had crossed the Mediterranean aboard the Danish ship Ark Futura, which steamed into the southern Italian port of Gioia Tauro. By late afternoon, about half of the 78 containers had been transferred, with cranes lifting each container onto a flatbed truck that then drove into the cargo hold of the U.S. cargo vessel MV Cape Ray.

An expert-level meeting of the Non-Aligned Movement, NAM, takes place in Tehran, Iran. Iran opened a world gathering of self-described nonaligned nations with a slap at the vast powers of the U.N. Security Council and an appeal to rid the world of nuclear weapons even as Tehran faces Western suspicions that it is seeking its own atomic arms.
