Kuwait parliament says supports Syria's rebel army

KUWAIT (Reuters) - Kuwait’s parliament said on Thursday that it would support the rebel Free Syria Army, and called on the Kuwaiti government to cut ties with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

The parliament, which has limited legislative powers, also called for Assad to be prosecuted for crimes against his people.

The Free Syrian Army is composed mainly of Syrian soldiers who have defected and volunteer civilians.
