Armed men in Syria's rebel-held Idlib province assassinated on Friday an activist who ran a radio station that provided independent news and satirized both President Bashar al-Assad and opposition insurgents, a war monitor reported.

Fares gained prominence early in the uprising against Assad, which began with mass demonstrations in 2011 and slid into civil war, with protest banners that drew international attention on social media.
