Syrian Prez supporters throw stones at US envoy
Amman: Supporters of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad threw stones and tomatoes at US Ambassador Robert Ford and other US diplomats who were visiting an opposition figure in Damascus on Thursday, a witness and diplomatic sources said.
"Two embassy cars were damaged. The US delegation is still there and the crowd is surrounding the building," said the witness.
The witness said the diplomats were visiting Hassan Abdelazim, a centrist politician who has been demanding an end to a crackdown on a six month pro-democracy uprising as a condition for any talks with Assad.
