Canada says will expel remaining Syrian diplomats

OTTAWA - Canada will immediately expel the three remaining Syrian diplomats in Ottawa in response to a massacre in the town of Houla last week, Foreign Minister John Baird said on Tuesday.
Baird told Ottawa's CFRA radio that the trio - a charge d'affaires and two other officials - had been told they were being kicked out.
"We want to say unequivocally that this is completely unacceptable ... and we want to condemn these actions," he said, referring to the Houla killings in which more than 100 people died.
