Syria's Ex-PM Riad Hijab Says Regime Is Collapsing

Former Syrian PM Riad Hijab, who defected to Jordan last week, has said the Syrian government is collapsing "morally, financially and militarily".

Speaking in the Jordanian capital, Amman, he said the regime controlled no more than 30% of Syrian territory.

He called on the opposition abroad to unite and on the Syrian army to stand alongside its people.
