BEIRUT - Syrian activists accused forces loyal to President Bashar Assad on Wednesday of using chemical agents during the heavy bombardment of rebel-held areas of eastern Damascus.

The reported use of the chemical agents could not be immediately verified. It coincides with a visit to Damascus by a United Nations team of chemical weapons experts.
