AMMAN - Syrian authorities arrested a blogger on Sunday who was traveling to Jordan to attend a conference on freedom of the press in the region, her friends said.

Razan Ghazzawi, 30, is the latest among scores of bloggers and journalists arrested since the break out of street protests against President Bashar Assad.

"She was arrested as she presented her passport to immigration at the Syrian border post of Nassib to cross to Jordan," one of her friends told Reuters.

Ghazzawi's last posting on www.razanghazzwi.com reported the release of fellow blogger Hussein Ghreir, freed last week after 37 days in jail.
