The Danish Ambassador who left Damascus when the embassy was set alight three weeks ago is on his way back to Syria.
At the time, he said that he wasn’t leaving for political reasons, but because Syria wasn’t doing enough to guarantee his security.
At that time Denmark advised all of its citizens to leave Syria – very few took the advice.
A year ago US Ambassador Margaret Scooby left Damascus in protest at ‘Syria’s murder’ of Rafiq Al-Hariri. That was three days after Rafiq died.
