Syrian opposition group to attend summit

The Syrian National Coalition - the principal opposition group battling the government of President Bashar al-Assad - has changed its position and will attend an international meeting this week in Rome focused on the Syrian crisis, the coalition's leader Ahmed Moaz al-Khatib announced Monday on Facebook.

The group earlier said it would not attend the meeting.

    How about their own acts of violence against civilians?
    And why did we block a UN vote condemning the act of terror by rebels which killed 100 & wounded 250?
