There are no "right hands" when it comes to Weapons of Mass Destruction or WMDs, the deputy UN chief told Members of the Security Council on Thursday.

Jan Eliasson made the remarks during an open debate on stopping the spread of these arms and making sure non-State actors cannot make or use them.

The three major types of WMDs are nuclear bombs, chemical warfare agents like nerve bombs and biological weapons.

Jocelyne Sambira has the story.
