Arms raised in victory, rebels in the Syrian town of Sahem appear to be celebrating a recent defeat of government troops. A voice on the amateur video can be heard saying that this check point now belongs to the Syrian people. But elsewhere, rebels were not celebrating. In this amateur video, white smoke appears to be rising from a neighbourhood in the conflict-racked town of Homs... and an explosion is heard off in the distance. Reuters cannot independently verify the content of the video. As the civil war rages on, Bashar al-Assad's government has organised a two day forum in Damascus to discuss solutions to the conflict. Even though the Syrian reconciliation minister has called for dialogue to resolve the war, it is not clear whether such a dialogue would involve opposition forces.
