Syrian defectors converge on central town

Al Jazeera meets defectors in Quaryatayn, which acts as a corridor for soldiers joining the rebel cause.

    The Syrian town of Quaryatayn, north of Damascus, has become known among government troops as a defector's destination.

    It acts as a corridor for those switching loyalties as the main roads from all sides of the country run through it.

    Al Jazeera's Sue Turton went there to meet the latest soldiers to join the rebels' cause.
