The German government has asked federal prosecutors to examine whether German firms broke the law by exporting equipment to Syria during the 1980s and early 1990s that may have helped the country to develop chemical weapons.A foreign ministry spokesman said it would be premature to conclude Germany had enabled Syria to develop a chemical weapons programme, adding that it could be hard after more than two decades to prove any crime had been committed.Last September the government published records showing Germany exported 111 tonnes of chemicals to Syria between 2002 and 2006 that could be used in the production of sarin gas.
