ISTANBUL, Feb 23 - Turkey-backed Syrian rebels have seized control of almost all of Syria's al-Bab and are now working to find and clear mines, Turkey's defense minister told state-run Anadolu news agency on Thursday.

The Free Syrian Army, backed by Turkish tanks, warplanes and special forces, have entered the center of al-Bab, a town they have been besieging for weeks, Isik said in an interview with Anadolu.
