Syria gives Tunisia, Libya 72 hours to close their embassies

Syria’s foreign ministry is giving Tunisia and Libya just 72 hours to close down their embassies in the capital, Damascus. The move comes after the two North African countries announced similar measures against Syria. Libya said earlier this week it had given Syria’s charge d’affaires and his staff in Tripoli three days to leave the country, and Tunisia has also started procedures to expel the Syrian ambassador and withdraw recognition of the Syrian leadership under President Bashar al-Assad.
