Western countries accuse the Syria government of possessing chemical weapons, an allegation rejected by Damascus.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a monitoring group, said the attack took place on Saturday.

Aziz Asber was the head of the Syrian Scientific Research Centre in Masyaf, near the city of Hama. Esber's driver was also killed in the blast, according to the newspaper and the Observatory.

The opposition Abu Amara Special Missions group claimed responsibility for the killings, which pro-government outlets described as an "assassination".
