British Diplomatic Staff Brought Home From Syria

Foreign Secretary William Hague has ordered the withdrawal of all diplomatic staff from the British Embassy in Syria.

The move comes after the security situation deteriorated further overnight and violence increased.

Hague relayed his decision to Parliament in a letter stating: "British nationals who remain in Syria despite our longstanding and consistent message to leave the country should contact the embassy of any remaining European Union member state if they require consular assistance."

Communication with the area has been largely cut off, and people are struggling to get in or out.
