Syria Rebels Appear to Make Big Weapons Seizure.

Khan Toman March 20, 2013-Syrian rebels appear to have seized a large number of weapons from a government arms depot near the northern city of Aleppo.

Activists posted several videos to YouTube on Saturday and Sunday showing crates of weapons and ammunition they say were seized from the arms depot in the town of Khan Toman.

In one video, Islamist rebels loaded dozens of the crates onto a truck. In another, rebels inspected the interior of a seized building containing crates of rockets and other arms.

There was no independent confirmation of the rebel seizure of the arms depot. Other activist videos posted on YouTube in recent days appeared to show rebels trying to seize the compound.
