WASHINGTON - The US State Department "read the riot act" to Syria's ambassador after Thursday's attack on the US envoy in Damascus, demanding more protection for US diplomats and compensation for damaged US property, officials said on Friday.

Assistant Secretary of State Jeffrey Feltman summoned Syrian Ambassador Imad Moustapha to the State Department and "read the riot act about this incident," State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said.

"He was reminded that Ambassador (Robert) Ford is the personal representative of the president and an attack on Ford is an attack on the United States. He was also asked for compensation for our damaged vehicles," she said.
