From The New York Times

“Syria’s state-run news agency, SANA, said United Nations monitors visited the central city of Hama on Sunday, where they met with the governor, while opposition activists said observers visited Rastan, a rebel-held town south of Hama. An amateur video posted online showed two white United Nations vehicles driving in Rastan accompanied by a red pickup truck with the words “Free Army” written on it.”

 

The next photo is from earlier this month.  It shows a U.N. observer walking with a man wearing a shirt with an Al Qaeda flag emblem, according to the caption.  I cannot make out the symbol.
