500 reported killed in rebel infighting in Syria

In this photo released by the Syrian official news agency SANA, Syrian citizens bury the bodies of victims who were killed Thursday by a car bomb at a mass grave, at al-Kaffat village in the central Hama province, Syria, Friday. Rebel-on-rebel fighting between an al-Qaida-linked group and an array of more moderate and ultraconservative Islamists has killed nearly 500 people over the past week in northern Syria, an activist group said Friday.
