Beirut (AsiaNews/Agencies) - Syria's crisis continues to destabilise Lebanon. Unknown gunmen killed a senior Syrian official in front of his home in Sarafand, southern Lebanon.
Mohammed Darrar Jamo headed the Political and International Relations Division of the International Organisation for Arab Immigrants. He was killed instantly, but his wife, who was with him at the time of the shooting, escaped unharmed, Lebanese sources report.
Darrar had frequently appeared as a political expert on Arabic-language television channels, defending President Assad.
His death comes as the war in Syria continues to destabilise neighbouring Lebanon. Two days ago, a convoy carrying members of the Lebanese Shia militant group Hizbollah was hit by a roadside bomb near the Syrian border, killing one person and wounding two others.
