France expels Syrian ambassador due to the massacre in Hula2012-05-29 16:37
According to the decision of the French president Francois Hollande, the ambassador of Syria must depart to his home country no later than next Monday or next Tuesday, the Lenta.ru reported.gt-en-newsitem-inside
Syrian diplomatic mission will be notified about this today or tomorrow, Hollande said during his meeting with President of Benin Boni Yayi.
As explained by the French president, the decision to expel the ambassador was taken after consultations with partners in the group "Friends of Syria", which took place on May 28 in Paris.
Emergency meeting of the group was held immediately after the news of the massacre in the Syrian town of Hula.
Last weekend, the Syrian opposition reported about shelling of a small town Hula, during which over 100 people including 49 children were killed. However, the nature of the wounds on the bodies of dead people showed that they had died not as a result of shelling, but were shot in the head or by cold weapon. The Syrian government accused the fighters, who consider themselves supporters of the opposition, of this crime. The UN observers, citing eyewitnesses, claim that civilians were killed by pro-government Syrian militants, the KP.ru reported.
