The scramble for life in Syria

Panic in the streets in a suburb of Damascus in the aftermath of an airstrike. Citizens scramble for signs of life. The video, which could not be independently verified by Reuters comes as the country's fractious opposition elected a new leader Saturday amid reports that rebel groups are fighting among themselves. President Bashar al-Assad is trying to cement control of a belt of territory between his seat of power in Damascus and his stronghold on Syria's Mediterranean coast -- it's a move which could sever the north and south of the country where rebels have a foothold. More footage from Homs shows history itself under attack as a 13th century mosque comes under fire. Activists say the death toll in Syria has now topped 100,000 in a conflict that began with peaceful protests more than two years ago.
