      Ecuador Would Consider Granting Asylum to Assad


      Ecuadoran President Rafael Correa said on Monday his country would consider granting asylum to his embattled Syrian counterpart Bashar al-Assad, AFP reported.

      "Any person that requests asylum in Ecuador, obviously we are going to consider as a human being whose basic rights we have to respect," Correa told the daily Folha de Sao Paulo in an interview published Monday.
