BEIRUT, Lebanon – A journalist from the cultural section of the government daily Tishrin was shot dead Wednesday at his home in Damascus during a search operation by the army, his friends said.

“They were looking for Musab al-Odallah and killed him because he was close to the opposition. He was in charge of the cultural section of Tishrin. This is murder,” said one of the friends when contacted by telephone.
