Security officials and Syrian state media say a Syrian political analyst known to back President Bashar al-Assad has been assassinated in Lebanon.
Gunmen killed Mohammad Darra Jamo early Wednesday outside his home in the southern coastal town of Sarafand.
The state-run SANA news agency blamed "armed terrorists" for killing Jamo, who often appeared as a commentator on Arab television channels. Assad's government often uses the term terrorist to describe opposition forces.
