AL-QAEDA-LINKED REBELS TAKE CONTROL OF CHRISTIAN VILLAGE… Some see biblical visions of doom in Syria trouble


(CNN) — An al Qaeda-linked rebel group has wrested control of the historic Christian town of Maaloula from regime forces, opposition groups said Sunday.

Videos posted on YouTube in recent days showed fighting between rebels and government forces in the tiny sleepy town, an hour’s drive from the capital Damascus.

“We cleansed Maaloula from all the Assad dogs and all his thugs,” a rebel commander shouts at the camera in a video posted online over the weekend.
