Syrian rebels prepare for battle in Aleppo

Report & Video by Mark Morris

A new video filmed in Aleppo, Syria appears to show rebel fighters preparing for battle against Bashar al-Assad's government forces.

As rebels continued to make advances across Syria, Assad has vowed to fight to the death in a conflict that has killed an estimated 38,000 people and risks sucking in other countries.

The international Syria mediator Lakhdar Brahimi said on Thursday that Russia and the United States would seek a "creative" solution to the Syrian crisis.

Brahimi insists that new coordination among the major powers could be emerging after months of sometimes bitter disagreement.
