Crowds attack diplomatic missions in Syria-residents

AMMAN Nov 12 (Reuters) - Crowds armed with sticks and knives attacked the Saudi embassy in Damascus and the French :?: and Turkish consulates in the city of Latakia on Saturday after the Arab League suspended Syria, residents said.

A diplomatic source in Damascus confirmed the attacks, which took place hours after the Syrian suspension by the Arab League to condemn an eight-month crackdown by President Bashar al-Assad's security forces on pro-democracy demonstrations.
