BEIRUT - Syrian army deserters killed seven soldiers and eight members of the security forces and gunmen loyal to President Bashar al-Assad in an apparent response to the killing of 11 villagers earlier on Wednesday, an activist group said.

The British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the rebel soldiers killed the soldiers in a bomb attack on a military convoy in Hama province. It said they also killed eight members of the security forces and pro-Assad gunmen in a separate attack.
