"Colonel Riad al-Asaad, founder of the rebel Free Syrian Army, lost a leg in an explosion in Syria overnight and is in Turkey for treatment, a Turkish official said on Monday.

Asaad, who established the FSA in 2011 to fight for the overthrow of President Bashar Assad, was one of the first senior officers to defect from the Syrian military."
