Anadolu Agency photojournalist Saleh Mahmoud Laila was killed in a suicide car bomb attack in Syria on Thursday.

The attack in the opposition-held town of Huraytan, north of Aleppo, was carried out by Daesh, local civil defense sources said.

At least 20 people were killed and dozens of other people injured, when a bomb-laden vehicle exploded at a marketplace, they added.

Laila, 27, had survived an airstrike by regime forces last July in al-Zahraa, a town in Aleppo province, suffering multiple burns.

He was sent to Turkey for treatment and later returned to Aleppo to cover the conflict.

Turkish PM offered his condolences
