ANKARA (Reuters) - A commander from the rebel Free Syrian Army died in a bomb attack on his car in the southern Turkish province of Hatay on Wednesday, the privately owned Dogan news agency said.

Dogan named the rebel leader as Jamil Raadoun, the commander of Sukour al-Ghab, one of several groups fighting under the Free Syrian Army (FSA) banner. Raadoun had survived a similar attack in Turkey in April.
