WASHINGTON - The US State Department on Friday confirmed that an American citizen carried out a suicide bombing in Syria.

The bomber, who called himself Abu Hurayra al-Amriki, carried out one of four suicide bombings on May 25 in Syria's Idlib province on behalf of Jabhat al-Nusra, al-Qaida's affiliate fighting to oust the government of President Bashar Assad.

"I can confirm this individual was a US citizen involved in a suicide bombing in Syria," State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said at a news briefing.
