UNITED NATIONS (AP) - Syria's foreign minister has claimed at the U.N. that his regime is fighting a war against al-Qaida linked militants who eat human hearts and dismember people while they are still alive, then send their limbs to family members.
    
Walid al-Moallem also claimed in a speech to world leaders on Monday that the U.S., Britain and France had blocked the naming of the real perpetrators of chemical weapons attacks. President Barack Obama told the U.N. last week that it was the Syrian regime that was behind a chemical weapons attack in August that killed hundreds and brought threats of a U.S. strike.
    
Al-Moallem also claimed "terrorists" fighting the regime in the civil war are being supplied with chemical weapons, but he did not name specific nations accused of supplying them.
