Syria’s opposition chief Ahmed Moaz al-Khatib has announced his resignation from the National Coalition on Sunday.

“I announce my resignation from the National Coalition, so that I can work with a freedom that cannot possibly be had in an official institution,” Khatib said in a statement published on Sunday on his Facebook page.
