Syrian opposition members have named their new interim prime minister: Ghassan Hitto. He will be tasked with forming a cabinet and securing control of opposition-held areas of Syria. The opposition hopes Hitto will unify rebel-held areas and prioritise getting aid to them. But his first task will be to form a cabinet. Hitto is 50 years old and used to be an IT manager in California. He is American educated and has US citizenship. But he moved to Turkey to co-ordinate aid for opposition-held territory.
