Egyptian protesters want Syrian ambassador out
Cairo: Around 2,000 protesters are rallying
outside the Syrian Embassy in Cairo to demand authorities
expel the country`s ambassador because of Damascus` deadly
crackdown on dissent.
The protesters marched today from a mosque near the
epicenter of the Egyptian uprising in Tahrir Square to the
nearby Syrian Embassy, chanting against Syrian President
Bashar Assad`s regime.
Some of the demonstrators lifted their shoes and beat a
picture of the Syrian ambassador.
Unlike several Gulf nations, Egypt has not downgraded its
diplomatic relations with Syria, angering many Egyptians.
Friday`s rally was the largest anti-Assad protest in Cairo
since the Syrian uprising began 11 months ago. A few hundred
protesters stormed the Syrian Embassy in Cairo last month.
