Syria says new constitution approved; EU imposes new sanctions

Syria's new draft constitution received overwhelming approval, the nation's interior minister said Monday.

Some 89.4% of voters approved the draft, said Interior Minister Mohammed al-Shaar, and 57.4% of eligible voters cast ballots.

"We would like to say congratulations to Syria and to the Syrian people, who expressed their legitimate right" to vote, al-Shaar told reporters.

    @gung hoe, sure don't like it when someone else plays your game do you! And so much for keeping your word about staying off the blogs, like I said the other day you can never stick with anything for very long. Maybe the lesson to be learned here is that when you tell lies & talk bad about people sometimes it comes back & bites you in the butt!
