Serbia to evacuate citizens from Syria

Serbia to evacuate citizens from Syria

Serbia says it will evacuate citizens from Syria because of the worsening situation in the country.
The Interior Ministry says 43 people so far have applied to be evacuated Friday on a flight of Serbia's national carrier, JAT Airways.
Most of the people wanting to leave are in the capital, Damascus, the ministry said Thursday.
Serbs living in Serbia are for the most part women married to Syrians, and the Foreign Ministry in Belgrade puts their number in the hundreds. Some of the marriages are the legacy of close political and economic ties formed in the communist era between the Arab world and communist countries like Yugoslavia.
Most of the Serbs in Syria have dual citizenship and many are choosing to stay in the war-inflicted country with their families.
