The Syrian regime is believed to have used chemical weapons including chlorine in 14 attacks since late 2013, French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said Tuesday.Fabius, who is on an official visit to Washington, also voiced France's regrets that US President Barack Obama had failed to unleash strikes on the Syrian regime as punishment for a sarin gas attack, saying it could have changed things on the ground.Human Rights Watch said meanwhile Tuesday that it also had evidence Syria's government had used chlorine gas on three towns in mid-April in violation of the chemical weapons treaty.The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons which is overseeing the destruction of Syria's chemical arms stockpile has sent a mission to Syria to investigate the allegations.
