Syrian Rebels Attack Aleppo Prison

BBC reports:

Rebel fighters have launched a massive assault on the prison in Syria’s northern city of Aleppo, reports say.

The rebels apparently detonated two car bombs to blast through the walls of the prison, which holds 4,000 inmates including anti-government activists.

The opposition said government forces had counter-attacked using tank shells and air raids.

I don’t trust rebel reports of anything, but if they do take this prison, it could be a big deal.
