The Free Syrian Army is demanding an al-Qaeda-linked group hand over the man it blames for killing one of its top commanders.

Kamal Hamami, known as Abu Basir, was killed at a checkpoint in Latakia province on Thursday.

The incident has increased tensions between fighters who are supposed to be working together to take on the forces of President Bashar al-Assad.

Al Jazeera's Zeina Khodr spoke to an FSA commander in the area who witnessed the killing.
