Syria Rebel Commander Riad Al-Asaad Wounded by Blast
A rebel military commander in Syria is reported to have been wounded by a bomb blast in Deir al-Zour province.
Activists said a device exploded next to a car in which Col Riad al-Asaad, long head of the Free Syrian Army (FSA), was travelling in Mayadeen.
There were conflicting reports about his fate, but an FSA spokesman told BBC Arabic that he had lost a leg.
Col Asaad once led the armed rebellion against President Bashar al-Assad, but his position was gradually superseded.
