Syrian rebels seek to create buffer zone

Opposition fighters describe why a safe zone is needed on Turkey border for people trying to flee violence.

    Syrian opposition fighters near the border with Turkey have said they are creating a buffer zone to act as a safe haven for the thousands of people trying to escape the fighting in their country.

    Several rebel groups have joined forces to drive government troops out of the area near the border, but they are demanding that NATO assist them in defending the buffer zone against government air strikes.
