Syria rebel infighting kills 45 fighters in 2 days

BEIRUT - Activists say rebel infighting in Syria has killed 45 opposition fighters over the past two days.


The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says the fighting flared up in eastern Deir el-Zour province on Sunday and continued into Monday.


The Observatory says the clashes pitted al-Qaida's affiliate the Nusra Front against the al-Qaida breakaway Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. (AP)
