      United States withdraws ambassador from Syria

      STATE DEPARTMENT The U-S is recalling its ambassador
      to Syria, amid rising tensions over yesterday's
      assassination of a popular former Lebanese official.
      Officials say American Ambassador Margaret Scobey is
      returning to the U-S "for consultations". But a U-S
      official says she delivered a stern message to the
      Syrian government before leaving the country.

      A State Department spokesman today expressed the Bush
      administration's "profound outrage" over the killing
      of former Lebanese premier Rafik Hariri (rah-FEEK'
      hah-REER'-ee). Hariri had recently been in opposition
      to a Syrian-backed faction in Lebanon.

      He died in a bomb attack that also killed 13 other
      people.
