Syrian Ambassador has royal wedding invitation revoked

The headline:  Royal Wedding diss: Britain disinvites Syrian diplomat Sami Khiyami because of bloody protests

The summary:  The British royal family has rescinded its royal wedding invitation to Syrian Ambassador Sami Khiyami due to his nation’s recent violent attacks against protestors.

The reaction:  The list of political figures who have been invited to the wedding has drawn some flack recently.

Most national ambassadors have been invited but Gordon Brown and Tony Blair were not.  Barack Obama was not invited but that has been customary for certain foreign heads of state.  Protestors are already planning on lining up outside of Buckingham Palace during tomorrow’s ceremony.
