KASAB - Residents of the Armenian Christian village of Kasab on Syria's border with Turkey began returning home on Monday, dancing, cheering and waving flags in the main square a day after the army retook the area from rebels.

The fall of Kasab to President Bashar Assad's forces less than three months after insurgents captured it dealt another symbolic and strategic blow to an opposition undermined in recent months by infighting and government gains.

Syrian state television has broadcast footage from the village, saying "security and stability" had been restored after the area was cleared of "terrorists," the government's standard term for the rebels fighting to overthrow Assad.
