Militant leader in Syria seeks Islamic state
A leader of an al-Qaeda-inspired militant group fighting the regime in Syria said his men do not fear death and they are determined to form an Islamic state.


Jabhat al-Nusra - Arabic for "the Support Front" - has claimed responsibility for suicide bombings and other attacks on regime targets across the country. The group has raised fears of a growing Islamic militant element among the forces seeking to topple President Bashar Assad. (AP)
