ISTANBUL - Some foreign governments are helping to arm the rebel Free Syrian Army fighting forces loyal to President Bashar Assad, a spokesman for the opposition Syrian National Council said on Monday.

Addressing a news conference in Istanbul, SNC spokesman George Sabra said the opposition had established a coordinating bureau to send arms to the rebel soldiers, with the help of foreign governments. He declined to say where the bureau was located or which governments were involved.
