worries about U.S. military strikes on Syria receded.

than $2 a barrel on Tuesday as Syria accepted a Russian proposal
to give up its chemical weapons, easing concerns about the
potential for U.S. military strikes against Damascus. 
    *  U.S. Treasuries yields climbed on Tuesday as upbeat
Chinese industrial output and retail sales data eased fears of
an economic slowdown, while ebbing concerns about a Western-led
attack on Syria also reduced demand for safe-haven U.S. debt.
