Italy expels Syrian ambassador: foreign ministry

ROME (Reuters) - Italy has declared the Syrian ambassador and other embassy staff “persona non grata”, the foreign ministry said on Tuesday, joining other European countries in expelling Syrian diplomats in a protest against massacres of the civilian population.

Britain, Germany, France and Canada have announced similar moves.
