Syrian state TV: Hama province governor assassinated in car bomb blast

Governor of Hama province in central Syria, Anas Abdel Razzaq al-Naem (R), was appointed by President Bashar al-Assad on July 2011.

The governor of the Hama province in central Syria was assassinated in a car bombing on Sunday, state television reported, in an attack it blamed on opposition fighters, Agence France-Presse reported.
“Terrorists assassinated Anas Abdel Razzaq al-Naem, the Hama governor, in a car bomb attack in the Jarajma district of Hama,” AFP quoted state television as saying.

Al-Naem was appointed by President Bashar al-Assad on July 2011 after the dismissal of the previous governor.

While state television said people were killed and others were injured, it did not provide a death toll figure.

The blast comes after another car bomb attack reportedly exploded late Saturday in the capital’s Christian-dominated Burj al-Rous district.
