Syrian Man Murders Russian Wife Sparking Spirited Debate on Syrian Assault Weapons Ban

al-Arabia:

A Syrian merchant in his 40s shot dead his Russian wife in the embattled northern city of Aleppo because she supported President Bashar al-Assad’s regime, the killer's cousin told AFP on Wednesday.

Mohammed then went outside and told onlookers that his wife, whom he had met in Russia during a business trip and married four years ago, “would not stop her provocation by expressing support for Bashar, and that he could not take her attitude any longer,” said Ahmed.

There is no police presence in Maysar. The rebels did not arrest the man.
