France says Syrian regime and accomplices using sarin gas

French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said Tuesday that Paris had solid proof that President Bashar al-Assad's regime was using sarin gas in the Syrian conflict.

"We have no doubt that the gas is being used..the laboratory tests are clear," he said on television after French laboratory tests on blood and hair samples from Syria pointed to the use of sarin gas. "There is no doubt that the regime and its accomplices" are using them, he added.
