Al Jazeera's Nir Rosen on the Syrian uprising

Journalist who reported for weeks during protests, says areas of country are seeing the beginnings of a civil war.

    Activists across Syria are preparing for another day of mass protests following Friday prayers, as security forces continue their deadly crackdown on dissent in the seventh month of the uprising.

    More than 3,000 protesters and activists have been killed by security forces across the country since March, according to Syrian opposition groups.

    Al Jazeera's Nir Rosen, a journalist who spent several weeks in cities and villages across Syria during the uprising, discusses his experiences there.

    Rosen says some parts of the country are seeing the beginnings of a civil war as the sectarian divide grows.
