BERLIN (Reuters) - Germany is expelling Syria's ambassador following a massacre in the town of Houla last week in which more than 100 people died, a government source said on Tuesday.

"The move was agreed in coordination with the United States, France, Britain and other partners," said the source, requesting anonymity.

An official announcement is expected later on Tuesday.
