Syria rebels get limited support in Aleppo

Locals in Aleppo have kept distance from rebels fighting for control of country's largest city.

    In the battle to control Aleppo, rebel fighters are facing the Syrian military with limited support from locals.

    Some residents give them food and shelter - but few are joining their ranks.
