Rebels: $25 Million for Assad, Dead or Alive
Rebel leaders in Syria have announced that they will give $25 million to whoever assists in the arrest or murder of Syrian President Bashar Assad. Rebel lead Ahmed Hajazi said the prize, funded by Syrian businessmen, aims to encourage those close to Assad to betray him.
The rebels have been fighting a bloody war against Assad’s regime for more than a year.
