    DAMASCUS Marouane Fellaini Manchester United Jersey UK , July 10 (Xinhua) -- At least seven people were killed in separate incidents in central and southern Syria on Thursday, including members of the National Reconciliation Committee, the official SANA news agency reported.

    Ammar al-Khatib, a member of the National Reconciliation Committee, was assassinated at the town of Tal in the countryside of the capital Damascus along with his 14-year-old son and a passerby, said SANA Antonio Valencia Manchester United Jersey UK , adding that the assassins lurked for al- Khatib near the al-Basha Mosque in the Tal town.

    The assassins opened fire on the man and his son on the spot, killing them immediately along with another passerby who happened to be there at the time of the shooting.

    The assassination of al-Khatib came just hours after another member of the National Reconciliation Committee, Mohammed Marwan Hammudeh, was assassinated in the Damascus' suburb of Qudsaya.

    The National Reconciliation Committee has been tasked with establishing reconciliation with the armed rebels, who are desirous of dropping their weapons in exchange for amnesty.

    By Martin Williams JOHANNESBURG, Jan. 30 (Xinhua) -- Political analysts in South Africa are divided on whether renowned anti-apartheid activist Mamphela Ramphele's surprise announcement that she will stand as presidential candidate for the opposition Democratic Alliance (DA) will have much effect on this year's general elections Less than a year after she launched a political party called Agang SA, Ramphele, a former World Bank managing director, stunned her own supporters when she stood along DA leader Helen Zille at a Jan. 29 media briefing in Cape Town Ashley Young Manchester United Jersey UK , confirming her candidacy.

    Although her move was widely welcomed on social networks, Ramphele faced internal revolt within Agang SA. Senior party officials accused her of betraying what she claimed to stand for. There were also rumblings of discontent with the DA, with many claiming they had not been consulted. Political analyst Steven Friedman, director of the Center for the Study of Democracy at The University of Johannesburg, said the DA had committed an error of judgement. Ramphele, he said Andreas Pereira Manchester United Jersey UK , had no constituency and could not claim a history within South Africa's ruling African National Congress (ANC), which is considered a vote-catching quality.

    Friedman said Agang SA hand been a "non-starter". This observation is borne out by poll results published earlier in January by research organization Ipsos, suggesting that Agang SA would attract less than one percent of South African voters. According to Friedman, those who supported Ramphele's latest move were most likely DA supporters already. He said Ramphele would be unlikely to draw voters away from the ANC, which attracted 64 percent of the vote in the previous general elections in 2009. January's Ipsos poll gave the opposition DA a maxima of 19 percent of this year's vote, up from 16.7 percent in 2009.

    However Jesse Lingard Manchester United Jersey UK , Jos Kuper of South African research organization Futurefact, said 43 percent of black South Africans have confidence in Ramphele. "Up to now the DA has battled to attract black support as it has lacked credible black leadership and black South Africans appear to be reluctant to vote for a party they feel is dominated by whites. Ramphele as leader of the DA could effectively prevent the ANC from playing the race card and conceivably offer voters a way- out," he said.

    Kuper's analysis suggests the DA has made a good strategic move. However, Gwede Mantashe, ANC secretary general, described Ramphele's announcement as a "rent a black" ploy designed to mislead voters about the nature of the DA.

    Ramphele Chris Smalling Manchester United Jersey UK , who has long been courted by the DA, has previously distanced herself from the party. In her new autobiography "A Passion for Freedom", published in January, she explains why she declined to join the DA, although she was offered leadership of that party. One of her reasons was, "I did not believe that the English-speaking white supporters of the DA understood the inequities visited on the majority in the country and the consequences of their perpetuation for the quality.
