VX Nerve Gas Disposal Nearly Complete

Last updated on Saturday, January 19, 2008

(NEWPORT) - The Army says they have destroyed more than three-quarters of the deadly VX nerve agent stored at the Newport Chemical Depot in Western Indiana.

Up to 12 truckloads each week take the byproduct from the destruction to an incinerator in Texas.

The process is scheduled to be completed by summer.
