A Syrian official and political commentator was gunned down by armed men at his home in Lebanon early Wednesday morning in the first such killing to take place in Lebanon.

According to Reuters, "Mohammad Darra Jamo, a commentator who worked for Syrian state media and often appeared on Arab TV channels to press Assad's cause, was riddled with bullets by gunmen at home in the southern town of Sarafand, Lebanese security sources said.

It was the first assassination of a pro-Assad figure in Lebanon since Syria's conflict started more than two years ago and follows a series of attacks in recent weeks against the Lebanese Shi'ite group Hezbollah, which has thrown its weight behind Assad on the battlefield in Syria.
