BEIRUT - Gunmen opened fire on a Syrian lawmaker in his car outside Hama city in the west of the country, killing him and another civilian, state news agency SANA said on Wednesday.

It said the attack on Waris al-Younes took place late on Tuesday and was carried out by unidentified "terrorists" - a reference to insurgents opposing government forces in Syria's more than three-year-long conflict.

Pro-government forces regularly clash with groups including al-Qaida's Nusra Front and other Islamist battalions in Hama. The province is in a stretch of territory in Syria's west that is a priority for Damascus.
