Cameron hints at arming the Syrian rebellion in major escalation of British involvement in civil war

BRITAIN is to open talks with gunmen seeking to overthrow Syrian dictator Bashar al Assad after David Cameron signalled that he would like to start arming the rebels.

In a dramatic escalation of the UK’s involvement in the Syrian civil war, the Prime Minister will today give the green light for British officials to advise rebel commanders on the ground for the first time.

Officials say the talks are designed to help the opposition forces form one united rebel army to bring about regime change.
