Syria denies reports of chemical weapons use near Damascus: TV
BEIRUT (Reuters) - Syria denied reports on Wednesday that chemical weapons had been used in an attack on the eastern suburbs of Damascus which activists said killed more than 200 people.
State television quoted a source as saying there was "no truth whatsoever" to the reports, which it said were aimed at distracting a visiting team of United Nations chemical weapons experts from their mission.
