Source: Syrian FM spokesman defects and leaves country

CAIRO - Syrian foreign ministry spokesman Jihad Makdissi has defected from President Bashar Assad's government and has left the country, a regional diplomatic source said on Monday.
"All I can say is that he is out of Syria," the source, who did not want to be named, told Reuters.
Lebanon's al-Manar Television said earlier that Makdissi had been sacked for making statements which did not reflect official positions.e left
