      Assad Regime Says Rebels Control Chemical Factory


      The regime of President Bashar al-Assad says Syrian rebels have gained control of a toxic chlorine factory east of Aleppo.

      The statement, quoted Sunday by Radio Free Europe's Radio Liberty, came less than a week after the Syrian foreign ministry claimed that Assad's troops would never use chemical weapons against his own people.
