Syria ready to put government officials under house arrest?

In the past few hours there have been reports of military activity around the houses of some government members.

The people being targetted are the ones mentioned by UN investigator Detlev Mehlis.

Does this suggest Bashar could be ready to 'co-operate' with Mehlis even at the expense of his closest allies?

The news comes just days after Syria announced that Mehlis CAN interrogate Maher Al-Assad and Asif Showkat.

A new dawn for Syria?
