Syrian Prime Minister defects to Jordan
Drip, drip drip: Riyad Hijab, who was appointed Prime Minsister of Syria last June, has defected to Jordan and joined the opposition. Jordanian officials confirmed to Al-Jazeera that Hijab is with his family after having been smuggled across the border, and his spokesman claims that the defection had been planned for months in collusion with the Free Syrian Army. The Syrian government claims Hijab was fired, but either way, this is probably the highest-level defection President Bashar al-Assad has suffered so far, and a sign to many that his power is waning. source
