Rebel groups unite in Syria's Aleppo

Two Free Syrian Army factions join forces in northern province, amid deep divisions within rebel ranks across country.

    Two rebel groups say they have have formed a joint command in Aleppo, a move that could improve the chances of the rebels increasing their control over the Syrian province.

    Allies of the Syrian opposition have repeatedly called for the rebels to unite as a precondition for military support from the West.

    But anti-regime fighters remain largely divided across the country.
