  • Syrian foreign ministry spokesman defects: regional diplomatic source

    Syrian foreign ministry spokesman Jihad Makdissi has defected from President Bashar al-Assad's government and has left the country, a regional diplomatic source said on Monday.

    "All I can say is that he is out of Syria," the source, who did not want to be named, told Reuters.

    Lebanon's al-Manar Television said earlier that Makdissi had been sacked for making statements which did not reflect official positions.
