Rebels celebrate in Aleppo as they appear to capture a check point in the city. The video, which could not be independently verified by Reuters comes as Turkey is calling on Muslim nations to recognize a fledgling Syria opposition. More footage appears to show rebels offering their prayers after capturing the checkpoint. In a town near the Turkish border people tear down a banner of Syrian President Bashar al_Assad. The conflict which began as a popular uprising last March has now claimed at least 38,000 lives -- and there is still no end in sight.
