Syria has told Libya and Tunisia to close their embassies in Damascus within 72 hours, a foreign ministry spokesman said on Saturday, after the two North African countries announced similar measures against Syria.

Libya said on Thursday it had given Syria’s charge d’affaires and his staff in Tripoli three days to leave the country, and last week Tunisia said it had started procedures to expel the Syrian ambassador and withdraw recognition of the Syrian leadership under President Bashar al-Assad.

The Tunisian Foreign Minister has confirmed that Tunisian Ambassador to Syria Mohammed Lawiti left Syria on Friday and is believed to be in Lebanon.
