Raw Video: Syrian Protesters Topple Statue of Bassel al-Assad on Horse in Deir El-Zour, Syria


Protesters in the Syrian city of Deir El-Zour toppled a golden statue of the brother of President Bashar Al Assad on Sunday, as anti-government activists continued a nationwide uprising.

Basil al-Assad was groomed to fill the role of President by his father. He was chief of presidential security while running a highly publicized anti-corruption campaign within the Syrian regime. He had a reputation for being an aficionado of fast cars, and was killed in a high speed one-car crash at a roundabout intersection on his way to Damascus International AIrport in foggy weather.
