Syrian: rebel infighting kills more than 1000


Inside Syria, two weeks of bloody infighting between rebel groups have left more than 1000 dead, a pro-opposition monitoring group says.

According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights clashes between extremists, such as those linked to al Qaeda and those less ideological are by far the worst since war broke out in Syria almost three years ago.

Earlier this month in Syria’s largest city Aleppo, where much of the recent factional violence has taken place, protesters called on rebel groups to stop turning on each other.

Radical Muslim cleric Abu Qatada, who is currently on trial facing charges of terrorism in his native Jordan, has also come out calling for an end to the infighting.

He was extradited from Britain 5 months ago.
