The US has condemned the Syrian military's attack on Qusair, a strategic town over which it gained control after a bloody siege.

Meanwhile, France said growing proof of chemical weapons use in Syria "obliges the international community to act".

He spoke hours after Syrian government forces retook full control of Qusair, after fierce fighting lasting some three weeks.
