Syria to pay for embassy damage

Syria has agreed to pay more than one million US dollars in damages to Norway after their embassy was damaged by rioters last year.

Syrian protestors set fire to part of the building during worldwide anger at the cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed were published first by a Danish newspaper, and then by other European newspapers.

A number of other embassies in the same compound were damaged by the rioters - it is not clear how much they will receive.

Embassies in Beirut were damaged, but Lebanon has refused to pay a cent to them. We know where Lebanese government money is going, don't we.
