Syria’s First Lady Makes First Public Appearance
Syrian President Bashar Assad’s wife, Asma Akhras made on Monday her first official public appearance since marrying Bashar more than two months ago, said reports.
Syrian Television showed the British-born wife with her husband greeting the Bulgarian president and his wife at Damascus Airport.
The couple have kept out of the spotlight since their family-only wedding in Damascus at the beginning of this year. The marriage was revealed in only a brief announcement in a government newspaper, and no official photos of the couple were released.
Asma, who holds a computer science degree from King's College, London, is the daughter of a wealthy Syrian cardiologist and long-time London resident, who belongs to a prominent family from Homs, some 160 kilometers from Damascus – Albawaba.com
