also sunday four more candidates announced their candidacy for syria's upcoming june presidential election state tv announced a poll assad is expected to win.

meanwhile clashes raging through the northern city of aleppo killed and wounded at least 70 people activists reported.

sigrid kaag of the organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons told reporters in damascus that 92.5 percent of syria's chemical materials had been removed from the country and destroyed. she called it 'significant progress" although she called on syria's government to ensure remaining materials would be eradicated by the end of april.

'i strongly encourage (the syrian government) to go for that last push that we can really talk of hundred percent removal and destruction" kaag said.

syria missed an april 13 deadline to stroy all its chemical weapons in accessible locations. international experts say that could impact on reaching a june 30 deadline to remove all syria's chemical weapons.
