Syrian Rebels Pull
Down Statue of Hafez al-Assad's
Amateur footage posted
online by opposition groups appears to show celebrations in a
square in the northern city of Raqqah after it is seized by
rebels. A statue of Bashar al-Assad's father and predecessor,
Hafez, is pulled down and a poster of the current president
ripped off its hoardings. Celebrations in the city, the largest
to be taken by anti-Assad forces so far, are cut short when
mortar hits the square.
Video contains images depicting the reality and horror of war and should only be watched by a mature audience.
