French newspaper Le Monde reported Monday the Syrian army is using chemical weapons against rebel forces, quoting two of its journalists who were in the area in April and May.

The journalists "witnessed" the use of explosive chemical weapons and their effects on rebel fighters, reporter Jean-Philippe Remy wrote.

Photographer Laurent Van der Stockt reported that on April 13 he saw fighters "suffocating and vomiting" in the area after an apparent attack using chemical weapons.
