Judge killed in Syria car bombing
Wednesday 07 November 2012
A judge has been killed in a bombing in a residential district of Damascus, Syrian state media said.
The Sana news agency said a "terrorist group" planted explosives under the car of Judge Abad Nadhwah in the Barzeh district.
The bomb was detonated remotely, killing him instantly.
The blast is the latest in a wave of attacks targeting high-ranking supporters of President Bashar Assad's regime.
The brother of Syria's parliament speaker was killed yesterday, also in Damascus.
Syria's regime describes the uprising against Assad as a foreign plot and refers to rebels fighting the military as terrorists.
More than 36,000 people have been killed since the revolt began in March last year.
