    As protests kick off in Syria after Friday prayers, Al Jazeera's Zeina Khodr meets one of the exiled activists who are distributing videos and news from Syria to a worldwide audience.

    Rami Nakhle, known online as Malath Aumran, fled from Syria to neighbouring Lebanon in January.

    He says he gets information from a trustworthy network of activists reporting from the ground in Syria, and accuses the country's secret police is distributing fake videos in an attempt to undermine their work.
