BEIRUT - Islamist rebels killed at least 15 civilians from the minority Alawite and Druze sects in the central Syrian city of Adra on Wednesday and Thursday, the pro-opposition Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

One other victim was a pro-government fighter, said the British-based monitoring group, which has a network of sources across Syria.

Syria's Sunni Muslim majority has largely joined the revolt against President Bashar Assad, who is an Alawite, while minority sects have largely stood behind him in the conflict that has killed more than 125,000 since it began in March 2011.
