BEIRUT (AP) - Syrian state TV says 42 people have been killed and 84 wounded in a suicide bomb attack inside a mosque in Damascus that also killed a top Sunni Muslim preacher and longtime supporter of President Bashar Assad.

Thursday's death of Sheik Mohammad Said Ramadan al-Buti removes one of the few remaining pillars of support of the Alawite leader among the majority sect that has risen up against him.

Syrian TV says among those killed were al-Buti's grandson. It did not elaborate.
