Islamic militants seeking to topple President Bashar Assad took full control of a strategic northwestern air base Friday in a significant blow to government forces, seizing helicopters, tanks and multiple rocket launchers, activists said. The Arabic words on the flag read:"There is no God only God and Mohamad his prophet, Jabhat al-Nusra (their brigade name)". (AP Photo/Edlib News Network ENN)
