Syria: Rebels kill ruling party official with bomb
Syrian rebels have bombed the house of a top member of the president's ruling Baath party in the south, and activists say he was killed.


Rebels detonated a car bomb near the house of Hussein Rifai in the city of Daraa, killing him and three of his bodyguards Thursday, said the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. The Observatory relies on reports from the ground. (AP)
