Tunisia recalls ambassador from Syria


09:52, August 18, 2011

TUNIS, Aug. 17 (Xinhua) -- The Tunisian government has decided to withdraw its ambassador from Damascus, the state- run press agency TAP reported, quoting an authorized foreign ministry source.

The measure comes following the "dangerous events" taking place in Syria, TAP said. Last week, the country's interim government issued a statement condemning the "indiscriminate use of force" against civilians in Syria.

Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and Bahrain also withdrew their ambassadors from the Syrian capital.
