Syrian man shot in Banias dies of his wounds

AMMAN - A man who was shot in the chest by gunmen loyal to Syrian President Bashar Assad in Banias this week died of his wounds on Saturday, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
Osama al-Sheikha, 40, was among a group of men who were carrying sticks and guarding a mosque in Banias on Sunday following mass protests against Assad's 11-year rule when the loyalists, known as "al-shabbiha", fired at them with AK-47 rifles from speeding cars, the Observatory and witnesses said.
