Al-Qaida splinter group encircles Syrian city

“The al-Qaida breakaway group that seized much of Iraq’s northern city of Mosul has encircled the city of Deir el-Zour across the border in Syria, activists said Wednesday. ‘They have surrounded the city. There are no entrances or exits left for people to flee,’ said a Syrian activist in the region who has contacts inside Deir el-Zour and who uses the name Salar. The information was confirmed by a second activist who uses the name Abu Abdullah, and who is based near Deir el-Zour.”
