The head of one of Syria's largest rebel groups was killed in a suicide bombing alongside many of his leading fighters, activists and state media reported Tuesday night, an attack likely to further weaken the country's already shaky armed opposition.Hassan Aboud of Ahrar al-Sham, an ultraconservative Syrian rebel group, was killed in the northwestern town of Ram Hamdan in the Syrian province of Idlib, an activist collective called the Edlib News Network and the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported. Both groups said that other leading group members were killed after a suicide bomber detonated his explosives belt in a meeting of Ahrar al-Sham's leaders. The Edlib News Network said that over 40 people were killed, including four other leaders of Ahrar al-Sham.
