    Al-Assad says ex-Nusra behind bombing of convoy

    Syrian President Bashar Assad was quoted Friday as saying that the group formerly known as the Nusra Front carried out the bombing of a convoy of evacuees from two Shi'ite villages Saturday that killed 126.

    No group has yet claimed responsibility for the bombing. Assad's comments were quoted by the Lebanese pro-Syrian government al-Mayadeen television channel.

    The Nusra Front was al Qaeda's formal affiliate in Syria until it broke off its allegiance to the global militant movement last year. It joined some other extremist groups in a new alliance called Tahrir al-Sham in January.
