Pentagon denies US-trained rebels captured in Syria

The Pentagon denied reports Thursday that new graduates of its program to train Syrian rebels had been captured by rivals from an Al-Qaeda affiliate. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said earlier that Al-Nusra Front had kidnapped eight members of a US-backed rebel unit. “While we will not disclose the names of specific groups involved with the Syria Train and Equip Program, I can confirm that there have been no New Syrian Force personnel captured or detained,” she told AFP.
