This photo released by the Syrian official news agency SANA on Wednesday, April 17, 2013, shows Syrian President Bashar Assad, right, during an interview broadcast on Syrian state television in Damascus, Syria. Syria's president accused the West on Wednesday of backing al-Qaida in his country's civil war, warning it will pay a price "in the heart" of Europe and the United States as the terror network becomes emboldened. Bashar Assad also lashed out at Jordan for allowing "thousands" of fighters to enter Syria through its borders. The rare TV interview comes as the embattled president's military is fighting to reverse rebel advances, with a rocket attack killing at least 12 people in a central village on Wednesday.
