Assad lashes at UK’s ‘shallow and immature rhetoric’ towards Syria.

....Al Qaeda has established a vast mountain stronghold in Mali's lawless north, launching attacks and then melting into the rugged hills, which they vow will become an Afghanistan-style quagmire for North African governments and Western militaries, according to experts.
