Riyad Hijab, Syrian Prime Minister Sacked

Syrian Prime, Minister Riyad Hijab has been sacked, just two months after his appointment, Syrian television reported on Monday.

The director of the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, Rami Abdel Rahman, disclosed that Hijab had fled Syria.

President Bashar al-Assad appointed Hijab, a former agriculture minister, as primeminister in June following a parliamentary election in May which authorities said was a step towards political reform but which opponents dismissed as a sham.
