The Al-Nusra Front or Jabhat al-Nusra, an Al Qaida associate, is part of the Syrian opposition,
declared a terrorist group by the US in December 2012
The pro-Assad protesters were directed to a police pen a few yards to the north.

and when I had finished taking pictures of them had to run not to miss the Tamil march.
