US restricts travel of Syrian UN envoy

By MATTHEW LEE
AP Diplomatic Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The State Department says it has imposed restrictions on the travel of Syria's ambassador to the United Nations.

The move follows complaints from Syrian-Americans that the ambassador, Bashar Jafari, was trying to divide their community.

The department says it's told the diplomat that he no longer can travel within the United States outside of the five boroughs of New York City.

Spokeswoman Jen Psaki is declining to elaborate on the restriction.

Diplomats from several countries, including some of those listed as state sponsors of terrorism, are required to get approval before traveling outside a 25-mile radius of Manhattan.

Some Syrian-Americans had complained that the envoy was traveling around the United States on a propaganda tour in support of Syrian President Bashar Assad's government.US restricts travel of Syrian UN envoy
