Mob ransacks Syrian embassy in Australia

The attack in Australia`s capital, Canberra, follows at least six others at Syrian embassies in Europe and the Middle East.



Canberra: Officials say men ransacked the Syrian embassy in Australia after reports of the bloodiest episode yet in Syria`s nearly yearlong crackdown on dissent. The attack in Australia`s capital, Canberra, follows at least six others at Syrian embassies in Europe and the Middle East.
Syrian Charge d`Affaires Jawdat Ali said the men smashed through the embassy`s front door on Saturday night, destroyed furniture and stole computers.

Ali says there were two embassy employees in the two-storey building at the time, but they were neither harmed nor threatened.

Activists say Syrian forces killed more than 200 people in the city of Homs before dawn on Saturday, pounding restive neighbourhoods with mortars and artillery. The government denies the reports.
