"Australia has expelled the first diplomats in two years, throwing two Syrian officials out of the country as part of a worldwide protest at the 'hideous' massacre of more than 100 men, women and children in the village of Houla. Foreign Minister Bob Carr said Syria's most senior diplomat in Canberra, charge d'affaires Jawdat Ali, was told to leave within 72 hours."
