Video: Syria: Assad troops fight back against rebels

Soldiers loyal to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad have reportedly beaten back some rebels advancing on the capital. But fierce street fighting continues on the doorstep of Damascus.

Clashes near the airport are also being talked about. But with journalists’ access restricted, the real situation is unclear.

Escalating bloodshed has prompted the Arab League to suspend its monitoring mission. But observers will stay in Syria until further notice.
