Syria Diplomats Expelled: Ambassadors Kicked Out Of Foreign Countries Following Houla Massacre

Governments around the world announced on Tuesday that Syrian ambassadors and diplomats are no longer welcome in their countries.

On Friday, gunmen opened fire in Houla, slaughtering entire families and killing over 100 people. Activists blamed the massacre on pro-regime forces.

The United States, Britain, Canada, Australia, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Bulgaria and the Netherlands decided to expel diplomats from Syria in a coordinated international effort to send a message to the Assad regime. On Wednesday, Turkey and Japan followed suit.
