Syria fighting: Rebel group 'has moved into country'

The rebel Free Syrian Army has announced it has moved its command centre from Turkey to "liberated areas" inside Syria.

A video posted on YouTube appears to show the leader of the FSA, General Riad al-Asaad, confirming the move, although he does not say when it happened or where the headquarters are.

The FSA is the most prominent of the armed groups fighting to overthrow the regime of President Bashar al-Assad.
