Radical Islamist negotiator demands al-Assad's execution

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad should receive the death sentence, radical Islamist opposition representative Mohammed Aloush tells dpa at the Syrian peace talks.

Aloush, who represents the Jaish al-Islam rebel group, rejects the suggestion by the Syrian government that the talks could eventually lead to a new government with the participation of the opposition, but with al-Assad keeping power.

"Bashar must be put on trial and executed for his crimes against the Syrian people,” he says.
