France 24 report -- Amid Syria's bloody civil war a third force has emerged to join the fight against President Bashar al-Assad's regime. Despite its relatively small numbers -- only several hundred fighters compared to the rebels' tens of thousands and the regime's hundreds of thousands -- Jabhat al-Nusra ("the Support Front") was officially recognised as a foreign terrorist organisation on Monday by the United States, which believes it is essentially a wing of al Qaeda in Iraq.
