BEIRUT (Reuters) - The Syrian government said on Wednesday that claims by the French and U.S. foreign ministers that it was still using chemical weapons were "lies".

On Tuesday, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said the Syrian government may still be using chemical weapons, following a suspected chlorine attack in the rebel enclave of eastern Ghouta on Monday.
