Syria says it is willing to withdraw its troops from neighbouring Lebanon, after fifteen years of effective military occupation.
Amr Mussa, the head of the Arab League, said that Bashar al-Assad, the Syrian President, had assured him this morning that Syria was prepared to fulfil its obligations in the Taef accords that ended Lebanon's civil war in 1995.
Syria's change in stance, after ignoring years of international diplomatic pressure, comes as the Lebanese people themselves turn on their Syrian occupiers, blaming them for the assassination last week of their former prime minister, Rafik Hariri.

Syrians will leave Lebanon when the U.S. leaves the Balkins.
