A Syrian film-maker working on a movie detailing the Assad regime’s abuses in the notorious Tadmur prison in Palmyra has regained consciousness after a suspected assassination attempt in Istanbul, the second such attack on opposition activists in Turkey in less than a month.

Muhammad Bayazid, who studied film-making in the US and was in Turkey promoting his upcoming film The Tunnel, was stabbed on Tuesday night while heading to a meeting with a supposed businessman who had promised to help raise funds for his project.

He was described on Wednesday evening as being in a stable condition after hours in intensive care.
