Syrian rebels storm police academy

REUTERS CANNOT INDEPENDENTLY VERIFY THE CONTENT OF THIS VIDEO Syrian rebels launch an attack on a police academy outside the embattled city of Aleppo. On Sunday (March 3) rebels said they seized the base after days of fighting against government forces. Heavy casualties were sustained on both sides. This amateur video, which could not be independently verified, is said to show the assault on Saturday (March 2). At least one tank appeared to be in the control of rebel fighters. It's thought the Khan al-Asal facility was being used as a military barracks to support government forces in Aleppo. Troops loyal to President Bashar al-Assad still hold around 40 percent of the city. Activists say a number of rebel brigades were involved in the assault in the base, which was key in pushing government forces back.
