yrian rebel groups held an important meeting in the Qatari capital of Doha to discuss how to better unite against the regime of President Bashar al-Assad. The meeting could reshape the Syrian National Council, the main opposition, into a possible government in exile. The talks come amid continuing violence in Syria, with reports of a bombing in Damascus on Sunday. The SNC is looking to broaden its ranks and agree on a unified platform. The intensive meetings will last four days and could bring about a complete restructuring of the rebel leadership in order to better position themselves in the 19-month-long crisis that has yet to topple Assad.
