U.S. may close embassy in Syria

“The United States is considering closing its embassy in Damascus, Syria because of security concerns, two senior U.S. officials tell CNN.

The embassy has only a “handful” of staff working with Ambassador Robert Ford. Most of the staff were evacuated earlier in the year and the diplomatic team was further reduced last week.”
