US to call in Syrian diplomat over embassy attack

WASHINGTON - The US State Department plans to call in Syria's senior diplomat in Washington to complain about an attack on the US embassy in Damascus, a US official said on Monday.
"We are calling in the Syrian charge [d'affaires] to complain," said the official who spoke on condition of anonymity, saying no US personnel were injured in the attack. "We feel they failed [in their responsibility to protect US diplomats]. We are going to condemn their slow response."
