Turkey says it is freezing assets of Syrian regime along with other economic sanctions
By The Associated Press

ANKARA, Turkey (AP) ' Turkey says it is freezing the assets of the Syrian regime along with other economic sanctions.

Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu says Turkey is also severing links with Syria's Central Bank and shelving strategic cooperation aimed at boosting ties with Damascus. He announced the sanctions during a news conference on Wednesday.

Davutoglu says Syrian regime "has come to the end of the road," by ignoring calls from the international community to stop its bloody crackdown on protesters.

The United Nations says at least 3,500 people have been killed in President Bashar Assad's crackdown.
