BEIRUT - Fighters of the al-Qaida-linked Nusra Front in Syria executed 11 men they accused of taking part in massacres by President Bashar Assad's forces, a video published on Thursday showed.

A man whose face was covered in a black balaclava shot each man in the back of the head as they kneeled, blindfolded and lined up in a row in the eastern province of Deir al-Zor.
