Syria conflict: 'Celebrations' after Syrian officials killed

There have been clashes throughout the night in many parts of Syria, after the deaths on Wednesday of three top regime figures in a suspected suicide attack.

Government and opposition both said large numbers of people died, in one of the bloodiest days of the conflict.

The president's brother-in-law, defence minister and head of Mr Assad's crisis team died in yesterday's bombing.
