Activist: Secret police spreading fake videos

Rami Nakhle explains how cyber-dissidents spread news from Syria across the world.

    As protests kick off in Syria after Friday prayers, Al Jazeera's Zeina Khodr meets one of the exiled activists who are distributing videos and news from Syria to a worldwide audience.

    Rami Nakhle, known online as Malath Aumran, fled from Syria to neighbouring Lebanon in January.

    He says he gets information from a trustworthy network of activists reporting from the ground in Syria, and accuses the country's secret police is distributing fake videos in an attempt to undermine their work.
