Deadly Onslaught: Kurds in firing line as Al-Qaeda carves out northern Syria

Al-Qaeda-linked militants in Syria have reportedly killed a top commander from the Free Syrian Army – in the latest display of deadly rivalry between opposition groups.

As part of that plan, the militants are accused of stepping up lethal assaults on Kurds in the north-east to seize their land. More from our correspondent in the region, Paula Slier.
