Ambassadors return to Syria

The Danish Ambassador who left Damascus when the embassy was set alight three weeks ago is on his way back to Syria.

At the time, he said that he wasn't leaving for political reasons, but because Syria wasn't doing enough to guarantee his security.

The Embassy was set on fire by an angry mob protesting at a danish newspaper which published cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed with a bomb on his head.

At that time Denmark advised all of its citizens to leave Syria - very few took the advice.

A year ago US Ambassador Margaret Scooby left Damascus in protest at 'Syria's murder' of Rafiq Al-Hariri. That was three days after Rafiq died.

THis is not related to this news but still important and hope will stirr a discution,France is releasind Siddiq because they can not return him to Lebanon because of fear of excution for killing Harreri,so why doesn,t Syria ask for his return and surrender to Syria for crime done in Syria where he will not be facing the death penalty for and France will not have trouble or an excuse to surrender him to.
