AMMAN - Qatar has pulled out its ambassador from Syria and closed its embassy after attacks on the compound by militiamen loyal to President Bashar Assad, diplomats in the Syrian capital told Reuters on Monday.

The embassy in the Abu Rummaneh neighborhood of Damascus closed last week when it was assaulted twice, they said.
