Syria's rebel group voices moderate stance

The Islamic Front issues a manifesto denouncing fundamentalism, prompting criticism from its ally, al-Nusra Front.

    The Syrian affiliate of al-Qaeda, al-Nusra Front, has criticised its ally, the Islamic Front, over its new manifesto for not explicitly calling for the creation of an Islamic state.

    The Islamic Front's relatively moderate stance is leading some to believe it is trying to attract Western support.
