GIOIA TAURO, Italy (AP) — A United States cargo vessel loaded with hundreds of tons of Syria's chemical weapons has pulled out of an Italian port, as part of the final phase of the international effort to rid Syria of its chemical weapon stockpile.

The MV Cape Ray steamed out of the port of Gioia Tauro after a 12-hour operation to transfer the chemicals from a Danish ship, the Ark Futura.

The Cape Ray is expected to head into the open sea where it will neutralize the chemicals with special machinery outfitted in its cargo hole.
