Syrian High Negotiations Committee under fire

Activists in northern Syria have formed a movement to oust the High Negotiations Committee, which they say isn't representing their demands.

ALEPPO, Syria — Syrians in the country's opposition-controlled north are demanding the dissolution of the Syrian High Negotiations Committee (HNC), claiming the negotiators are making too many concessions to the regime and even Russia and Iran.

Activists accuse the HNC, headed by opposition leader Nasr al-Hariri, of giving up too much and failing to implement items stipulated in the Geneva I conference, which include forming a transitional government in Syria and releasing detainees from regime prisons.
