Anti-regime activists accused the Syrian government Tuesday of again using chemical weapons in a Damascus suburb, days after the U.S. and France made claims of similar recent attacks.Shortly after the announcement Monday that a presidential election would be held in June, the United States said Assad's regime had launched a chemical attack on an opposition village earlier this month.Syria has handed over 86.5 percent of its chemical weapons, the global chemical watchdog said Tuesday.Each candidate must be endorsed by 35 MPs from Syria's 250-member legislature.The opposition, which insists Assad should step down and play no role in Syria's future, rejected the election as a "farce".In the Damascus suburb of Mliha, 11 airstrikes were reported, while fighting also raged and killed an undetermined of government troops and rebels.
