TO GO WITH AFP STORY SYRIA-CONFLICT-JUSTICE-RELIGION-ISLAM Truck drivers who were arrested at a rebel checkpoint for transporting hundreds of bottles of whisky and other banned alcohol hidden in their cargo of water, are seen under arrest at a police station in the Masaken Hanano district of Aleppo, on December 28, 2012. In the heart of Syria's rebel territory, away from the blasts and bullets of the frontlines, another struggle is playing out: one for a new justice system that could shape the future face of the country should the regime fall. The struggle is between ex-regime judges and Islamic jihadists, and at stake is whether the courts apply a modified version of existing Syrian law, or switch to strict sharia law.
