French President Francois Hollande said Sunday that his country had "information" that the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad had continued using chemical weapons, although Paris lacked proof.

"We have a few elements of information but I do not have the proof," AFP quoted Hollande as telling the Europe 1 radio station.

Asked about recent reports that the Damascus regime was still using chemical weapons in the embattled country, Hollande said "What I do know is what we have seen from this regime is the horrific methods it is capable of using and the rejection of any political transition."
