Syria denied on Monday that it had used cluster bombs in its battle with rebels trying to overthrow President Bashar Assad, saying it did not possess such weapons.
A brief military statement carried by state television came in response to a report by Human Rights Watch which said on Sunday that government forces had dropped Russian-made cluster bombs over civilian areas.
"The Syrian Arab Army does not possess these kinds of weapons and affirms that these reports [of their use] are completely untrue," the army statement said.
