Sunni Cleric in Egypt Calls for Holy War Against Syria's Assad

Fighting between Syrian rebels and Hezbollah has also been reported in Lebanon


A leading Sunni Muslim cleric has called on Sunnis from across the Middle East to go to Syria to fight against the government of President Bashar al-Assad.

Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, an Egyptian Islamist based in Qatar, fanned sectarian flames in the region Saturday by telling his followers to support rebels trying to topple the Assad government.
