Syria puts travel ban on the UN 6

Flash 20.35

Syria has put a travel ban on the 6 people the UN wants to question over the murder of Rafiq Al-Hariri.

Asif Showkat and Maher Al-Assad - two of the President's closest advisers are among those will be stopped at the border if they try to leave Syria.

Keeping them in the country is seen as the first stage in handing them over to Detlev Mehlis's UN Commission.
