Insurgents Handed Over

Syria hands over Saudis caught on way to Iraq
RIYADH - Syria has handed over to Saudi Arabia more than 30 Saudis who were trying to cross into Iraq, Saudi Arabia's Interior Minister Prince Nayef said.

Syria has been pressure from the United States to stop foreign fighters from crossing its border into Iraq to join a two-year insurgency targeting US forces there and the government they helped create.

"We've recently received more than 30 Saudis," Prince Nayef told the official Saudi Press Agency and state television. He said the kingdom did not know how many Saudis were in Iraq.
A major offensive that began several weeks ago against insurgents along the border between Iraq and Syria. The American troops found many insurgents that they had been fighting were not Iraqis. It's good that Syria is now starting to take a bit more responsibility for their side of the border. They're talking a different language.
