The U.S. ambassador to Syria...

...is heading home.

The Associated Press reports that the White House has ordered its ambassador to Syria to return home.
The U.S. has pulled its ambassador out of Syria over security concerns, blaming President Bashar Assad's government for the threats.
State Department spokesman Mark Toner said Monday that Ambassador Robert Ford returned to Washington this weekend after “credible threats against his personal safety.”
Reuters adds that there is no clear indication when Mr. Ford will return to his position in Damascus.
