WORLD BRIEFING / SYRIA

U.S. is warned against conducting further raids

October 30, 2008|Times Wire Reports

Syria threatened to cut off security cooperation along the Iraqi border if there are more American raids on Syrian territory, and the U.S. Embassy in Damascus announced it would be closed today because of a mass rally called to protest a deadly weekend commando attack.

Thousands were expected to participate in the government-sanctioned protest.

In Washington, State Department spokesman Robert Wood said Syria formally notified the U.S. that a cultural center should shut down immediately and an American school by Nov. 6.
