Suicide In Syria

Last week, we wrote about the fast developing end-game in Syria.

Today, via BBC, Syrian minister 'commits suicide'

Syria's Interior Minister Ghazi Kanaan has committed suicide, the official news agency in Damascus says.

He was reportedly questioned by a UN investigator last month over the murder of ex-Lebanese PM Rafik Hariri.

For many years Kanaan was Syria's powerful intelligence chief in Lebanon, which was dominated by Syria until its military withdrawal earlier this year.

Hours before his death, he said he had served Lebanon with honesty, adding that this interview may be his last.

How many more pawns will have to be sacrificed for protecting the increasingly desperate dictatorship in Damascus?

Amazing development. Syria destabilized Lebanon. Kanaan, for one, can never be forgiven for that.
