http://www.euronews.com/ In what is thought to be the first crack in President Bashar al Assad's regime - Syria's deputy oil minister has announced his defection.

Appearing on You Tube, Abdo Hussameddin condemned the Syrian regime for its brutality and said he was joining the anti-government revolt.

It makes him the first high ranking civilian official to abandon Assad since the uprising against his rule erupted a year ago.
