TUNIS - Staff at the Syrian embassy in Tunisia's capital lowered the national flag over the building on Saturday, hours after the Tunisian president said he was expelling the ambassador and preparing to sever relations with Damascus.

A Reuters reporter outside the Syrian embassy said that when the flag was lowered, a crowd of nearly 200 people, who were protesting nearby against the Syrian government's crackdown on its opponents, cheered and shouted: "The people want liberty for Syria!"
