Syrian rebel chief: We will not give up
The chief of Syria's main Western-backed rebel group has vowed to continue fighting until President Bashar Assad's "criminal" regime is gone. Gen. Salim Idris's remarks on Friday were meant to mark the second anniversary of the Syrian uprising.


Idris calls on regime soldiers to join the rebels in a "fight for freedom and democracy." He says the opposition's task is "not easy" but pledged to continue despite his fighters suffering severe weapons shortages. (AP)
