Clarissa Ward’s First ’60 Minutes’ Story is a Report from Syria

CBS News foreign correspondent Clarissa Ward has her first piece for “60 Minutes” tomorrow night. In it, Ward interviews Free Syrian Army supporter Dr. Maher Nana an American-Syrian doctor who says the West’s refusal to support the rebels is driving Syrians toward radical jihadists for support. Ward also speaks with the leader of one of the jihadi groups, Ahmed al-Abaid who commands several hundred Muslim fundamentalist fighters in Northern Syria. Ward and her team also take viewers to Aleppo, where residents live under constant bombardment as Syria’s 18-month long civil war drags on.
