Syria opposition creates Aleppo police force

The move is part of rebels' attempt to restore law and order in areas under their control in the northern city.

    The Syrian opposition is trying to restore law and order in areas under its control in the city of Aleppo.

    It is setting up a police force, which includes defectors from President Bashar al-Assad's regime.

    But some locals say they cannot trust officers once loyal to the president.
