A Syrian man has been killed ‘execution-style’ in Germany as fears grow that the Damascus regime is actively hunting down its critics in Europe.
The 35-year-old man was killed after he stopped in his Volkswagen car at a set of traffic lights in Sarstedt, near Hanover, and two men opened the doors and fired inside.
The two assassins then fled the scene. The victim died from head wounds and a special murder squad has been formed at Hildesheim, where he lived.

Police made no speculation whether his murder was linked to the unrest in Syria that has been continuing since March last year.
The victim’s name, in accordance with German media laws, was not released.
The murder comes a week after a critic of President Bashar Assad’s regime was badly beaten by men wielding iron bars at his home in Berlin.
