    Syria rebel leader Abu Khaled al-Suri killed in Aleppo

    A rebel leader linked to al-Qaeda has been killed in a suicide bomb attack in the northern Syrian city of Aleppo.
    Abu Khaled al-Suri was among several people who died when a base of Ahrar al-Sham, part of the Islamic Front, was targeted on Sunday, activists said.
    The Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIS), a jihadist rebel group, is thought to have been responsible.
    Suri was reportedly sent to Syria by al-Qaeda to end the infighting between ISIS and other rebel groups.
    It is said to have left more than 2,000 people dead since early January.
