Jordan says withdraws from Syria monitoring mission

BEIRUT - Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh said on Thursday Jordan had withdrawn its monitors from the Arab League mission to Syria, saying the decision was taken several days ago when the work of the monitors was suspended.
"There is no mission and we withdrew in conformity with the Arab League decision," Judeh told Reuters. The Arab League said on Saturday it had suspended its mission in Syria due to rising violence, but has yet to formally declare the mission over.
