This video, allegedly leaked by the Revolution Leadership Council in Damascus, shows what local activists claim to be the assassination of Muhammad Said Ramadan al-Buti. Regime media reported that the Syrian Sunni cleric closely allied with President Bashar al-Assad’s government was killed last month in an explosion in a Damascus mosque.

While 19 others were reportedly killed in the Iman Mosque attack, speculation was rife in oppostion circles that the explosion was a mask for a gangster style hit of al-Buti. Video courtesy of local activists in the capital.
