Damascus: Sunni cleric and supporter of the regime killed in attack

KURDWATCH, March 28, 2013—On March 21, 2013, more than forty people were killed in an bomb attack on a mosque in Damascus, including the Sunni cleric Muhammad Saʿid Ramadan al‑Buti (b. 1929). Al‑Buti, who was of Kurdish origin, had maintained good relations with the ruling Assad family for decades. He was one of the few Sunni supporters of the regime who also enjoyed great respect in the Islamic world. Representatives of the government and the opposition are blaming one another for the attack.
