Syria's main opposition group broadens base

Published: 11.05.12, 23:16 / Israel News

The main Syrian opposition bloc on Monday broadened its ranks to accommodate more activists and political groups from inside the country, officials said, in an apparent nod to international demands for a more representative and cohesive leadership.

National Council's reforms, approved on the second day of a five-day convention in Doha, may not suffice to counter a US-backed plan to create a new opposition leadership that would greatly dilute the SNC's influence. The US has criticized the SNC, dominated by exiles and academics, as ineffective and out of touch with those fighting in Syria to overthrow President Bashar Assad. (AP)
