Syrian opposition boycotts local polls

Many activists no longer believe there is any room for negotiation with President Bashar al-Assad’s government.

The Syrian government has pushed ahead with municipal elections, as part of what it says are political reforms.

Opposition groups, however, boycotted the polls, and many activists no longer believe there is any room for negotiation with the authorities, following President Bashar al-Assad’s brutal crackdown on protests.

Al Jazeera’s Zeina Khodr reports from the province of Hatay in southern Turkey, where she met with members of the opposition.
