Inside Syria: Exclusive look at pro-Assad Christian militia

In a CNN exclusive, CNN's Fred Pleitgen (@fpleitgencnn) reports from Saidnaya, a predominantly Christian town outside Damascus that is standing firmly behind President Bashar al-Assad.

"I don't know why, but we love the president very much," said Housam Azar, a Saidnaya resident and organizer of the town's militia. "Sure, there have been mistakes, but we love the president a lot."
