Al-Qaeda paves way for break ties with Syria affiliate , Al-Nusra

BEIRUT: Al-Qaeda prepared the ground today for a break with its Syrian affiliate, Al-Nusra Front, following several days of online chatter over a split between the jihadist groups.

"We direct the leadership of Al-Nusra Front to go ahead with what preserves the good of Islam and the Muslims, and protects the jihad of the Syrian people," Ahmed Hassan Abu al-Khayr said in an audio message released online by Al-Nusra.
