Crowds Greet Lavrov Convoy in Damascus

Hundreds of flag-waving supporters of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad lined the streets of Damascus to welcome Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Tuesday. Lavrov and Russian Foreign Intelligence Service chief Mikhail Fradkov are in Damascus to meet Assad three days after a Russian-Chinese veto of an Arab-backed U.N. resolution on Syria caused world-wide outrage.
