This is the BBC news. Hello, I am Johnathan Izard.

The US military has reportedly captured a chemical weapons expert who once worked for Saddam Hussein, but now belongs to the militant Islamic state group. The man identified as Sleiman Daoud al-Afari was apparently taken prisoner in a raid conducted by Special Forces a month ago. With more details, here is Alan Johnston. “The US recently increased its capacity to carry out Special Forces operations in Iraq. And it seems the commanders managed to take prisoner a man called Sleiman Daoud al-Afari. He is said to be a veteran of Saddam Hussein's chemical weapons program. And under interrogation, he is reportedly reviewed how the Islamic state group was able to acquire mustard gas agent, and load it into artillery shells. There has been a series of reports of the militants using the substance on the front lines.”
