Syrian tank blown apart by 'Russian-made missile'
Rebels have discovered the value of anti-tank missiles after seizing Russian-made Konkurs weapons from regime bases and turning them against their previous owners.
Russian President Vladimir Putin said today that sending weapons to Syrian rebels could backfire one day but defended Russia's own military contacts with the Syrian government.
Striking a defiant tone after two days of talks at a G8 summit, Mr Putin said he could not rule out new arms contracts with the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. He warned that arms sent to Syrian rebels however could one day end up being used in Europe.
He along with other G8 leaders agreed seven key objectives to work together on to try and bring an end to the crisis in Syria.
