Jordan says has hosted 100 Syrian deserters
Jordan FM says kingdom has given refuge to 100 Syrian deserters since outset of uprising
By The Associated Press

AMMAN, Jordan (AP) ' Jordan's foreign minister says 100 Syrian military and police deserters have taken refuge in the kingdom throughout the eight-month uprising in their country.

Nasser Judeh's Sunday remarks were the first official public confirmation that Jordan hosts Syrian defectors.

In September, officials said privately that Jordan had received 60 Syrian army and police deserters, who ranged in rank from corporal to colonel.



Judeh told The Associated Press that the Syrian soldiers and policemen, whom he claimed were conscripts rather than officers, had arrived in batches over the last eight months.

Many Syrians fleeing President Bashar Assad's crackdown have also sought refuge in neighboring Turkey.
