Inside Syria with rebel forces

UN investigators say they have had reports of shelling and arrests by Syrian forces, along with executions of some soldiers captured by rebel forces.

Despite restrictions on journalists entering the country, the BBC's Ian Pannell managed to get into Idlib province in the north of the country.
