Syria: Turkey sending foreign fighters to Latakia
Syria's information minister has lashed out at Turkey, accusing Ankara of sending foreign fighters across the border to fight Syrian government troops in President Bashar Assad's ancestral homeland in Latakia province.


Omran al-Zoubi says neighboring Turkey is facilitating the entry of "groups of foreigners, armed to their teeth" into Latakia, where fighting is raging between Syrian government forces and rebels trying to oust Assad.


Al-Zoubi spoke to Syrian state TV late on Sunday. (AP)
