Italy, France recall Syrian ambassadors for consultations

The move follows Britain’s recalling of its ambassador for consultations and the American closure of its embassy in Damascus. The increased pressure comes as efforts to condemn the Syrian regime for its violent crackdown failed this week at the United Nations Security Council due to a Russian and Chinese veto, and could signal a Western decision to take matters onto its own hands.
