UN pulling out nonessential int'l staff from Syria
BEIRUT (AP) — The United Nations says it is pulling out all non-essential international staff from Syria due to security issues in the civil war-struck Arab state.

Radhouane Nouicer said Monday that the reason is because "the security situation has become extremely difficult, including in Damascus," the Syrian capital.
