A roadside bombing in Syria killed a local al-Qaida leader and his wife, activists said Tuesday, an attack that may ignite a new round of infighting between rebel groups in the war-torn country.The attack came after Nusra fighters seized a controversial Western-backed Syrian military commander, Ahmad al-Nuaimi last Friday.The bombing and the abduction risk igniting rebel infighting in the south between more moderate Syrian opposition fighters and the hard-line Nusra Front.
