      Syria: At Least a Dozen Secret Police Officers Defect


      At least a dozen Syrian secret police officers have defected from an intelligence compound, activists told the Reuters news agency on Sunday.

      According to the report, the defection appears to be the first major desertion from a service that has acted as a pillar of President Bashar al-Assad’s rule.
