Syrian Olympians avoid war talk in London

Published: 08.01.12, 17:28 / Israel News

The Syrians don't mention the war at the Olympics. "We never talk about this," said Bayan Jumah, a swimmer from Aleppo, a city wracked by violence for nearly two weeks during one of the most significant battles of a 17-month uprising against the government of Bashar Assad.

 

Assad is urging his armed forces to step up the fight against rebels in Aleppo and the UN reported a significant escalation in the civil war, with the military using warplanes to fire on opposition fighters. (AP)
