WARNING: VIDEO CONTAINS GRAPHIC IMAGES Militants assassinated a well-known supporter of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in Lebanon early on Wednesday, the latest sign of Syria's civil war spreading to its smaller neighbour. Mohammad Darra Jamo, a commentator who worked for Syrian state media and often appeared on Arab TV channels, was attacked by gunmen hiding in his house in the southern town of Sarafand, security sources said. Jamo's wife, who was with him during the attack but not harmed, said on Hezbollah TV that officials from Syria's ruling Baath party had called her husband on Tuesday and warned him to be careful. Syrian state media blamed an "armed terrorist group" for the killing which took place at around 2 a.m.
