Saudi king demands end to Syria killing, pulls ambassador

JEDDAH, Saudi Arabia - Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah demanded an end to the bloodshed in Syria on Monday, and said he was withdrawing his country's ambassador from Damascus.
"What is happening in Syria is not acceptable for Saudi Arabia," he said in a written statement read out on Al Arabiya satellite television.
"Syria should think wisely before it's too late and issue and enact reforms that are not merely promises but actual reforms," he said. "Either it chooses wisdom on its own or it will be pulled down into the depths of turmoil and loss."
