Popular Syrian comedian Yassin Bakush was killed on Sunday after his car was hit by a shell in an area of war-torn southern Damascus, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

Born in 1938, Bakush was famous across the Arab world for his roles in several television serials, theater productions and films, which poked fun at politics and society in Syria at a time when state censorship was stifling.
