The battle for Damascus rages in Syria. Amateur video which could not be independently verified by Reuters shows members of the Free Syrian Army as they move in on a military checkpoint under command of government soldiers. They are fighting for their lives in a war where more than 70,000 people have been killed. March was the deadliest month in the more than two-year-old conflict with 6,000 people killed. The Red Cross says the humanitarian situation in Syria is worsening rapidly -- and yet the fight goes on. More footage from the south shows a man standing in front of what appears to be a damaged surface-to-air missile. He claims rebels have captured an air defense base -- in a fight where there is still no end in sight.
