Syria rebels lay siege to strategic city

Al Tilal al-Humr, the last government held village in Quneitra province, looks set to fall.

    Syrian opposition forces have said they are closing in on an important village in the south.

    Rebels have managed to capture more than a dozen military posts in Quneitra province in recent weeks, but there is a fierce battle raging for the lone village in the province still held by government forces.
