In the background of the video, which was uploaded online, a nationalist Russian military song, "I am Russian special forces," plays. The lawsuit was filed in March on behalf of Mohamad's brother, Abdullah. To protect family members still living in regime-controlled areas of Syria, Abdullah requested that CNN conceal his full identity and the location of the interview. "One day a guy from our town sent me a video clip, he said: 'Watch the video, it could be your brother.' "He was being tortured by soldiers, they were not Syrian, we did not understand what they were saying."
