Syrians back al-Nusra despite 'terrorist' tag

Outrage among many Syrians after conservative rebel group lebelled 'terrorist organisation' by US.

    The US decision to put Jubhat al-Nusra - one of the groups fighting against the Syrian government - on its list of "terrorist organisations" has caused outrage in some parts of the country.

    Al-Nusra has gained popularity, especially in the villages and towns of Syria, and many people are suspicious of the West and Syrian politicians who work closely with them.
