"At the end of a week in which the unarmed military observers sent to Syria by the United Nations were bombed and shot, and witnessed the security forces beating protesters, the mission’s leader was forced to defend his team from the ridicule of Syrian protesters."
"Some 200 protesters have rallied in front of the Turkish Consulate in the southern Iraqi city of Basra, calling for the Turkish government to stop interfering in Iraq's internal affairs.
Their demands included handing over Iraq's fugitive Vice President Tariq al-Hashimi, who is on trial in absentia in Baghdad, accused of running death squads."
