Syria is expelling diplomats from 11 countries, including the U.S.
If you recall, last week several countries had expelled Syrian diplomats, so this is a bit of a tit-for-tat move.
CNN's Arwa Damon says most of these countries had already shut down their embassies or withdrawn their ambassadors anyway and at this point in the Syrian uprising it seems clear that any diplomatic efforts so far has failed.
Meanwhile, a United Nations official says the Syrian government will let the U.N in to the country to deliver humanitarian aid
Syria says it will allow U.N. to deliver humanitarian aid
The Syrian government has said it will let the United Nations enter the country and deliver humanitarian aid to people in need, a U.N. official said Tuesday.
"After a long time of very intense negotiations, we now have an agreement in writing with the Syrian government on the scale, scope and modality of humanitarian action in Syria," John Ging, director of operations at the U.N.'s Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, said in Geneva, Switzerland.
"Whether it's a breakthrough or not will depend on the action on the ground. I cannot predict what that will be, but we will work very hard to make it a breakthrough, because the people of Syria need us to break through with a much bigger humanitarian response."
