ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION A blast killed at least one person in a region of north Syria controlled by Turkey-backed Syrian rebel groups, a witness and a war monitor said on Saturday (September 1).
Video posted on social media showed the aftermath of the explosion in Azaz, Aleppo province which was caused by a car bomb, said the war monitor, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, and hit a sit-in to demand new elections to the local council, the witness said.
