Druze leader killed in car bomb in southern Syria

A car bomb blast killed a Druze leader and at least three other people in southern Syria on Friday, a monitor said. The explosion on the outskirts of the town of Sweida killed Sheikh Wahid al-Balous, who opposed both the Syrian government and Islamist insurgents fighting against it, the British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said. A separate blast that occurred around the same time in Sweida killed and wounded dozens of people, the Observatory said.
