Syria report: Regime nabs leader of a-Nusra rebel group

A security source in Syria stated that the leader of the al Qaeda-affiliated Jabhat a-Nusra rebel group, was arrested in Damascus for the alleged murder of the senior cleric, Mohamed Said al-Buti, who was close to the Syrian regime.


The source noted that the leader's arrest was made two months ago, and with him were arrested two of his deputies. The statement was issued after Syrian Prime Minister Waal al-Halki, who said on Monday night that suspects in al-Buti's killing were arrested last March. (AFP)
