    Syrian diplomat denies Assad's wife in Russia

    MOSCOW, July 19 (Xinhua) -- Syrian Ambassador to Russia Riyad Haddad Thursday denied the spouse of President Bashar al-Assad has arrived in Moscow.

    "This is absolutely wrong information. The wife of the president did not come to Moscow," Haddad told reporters here.

    The diplomat said Asma al-Assad remained in Damascus with her husband and other family members.
    Russia strongly condemned it as an "act of terror" and demanded the arrest and strict punishment of those behind it.

    Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said that Moscow considered the attack another attempt to destabilize the situation in Syria, calling on both sides to reassess the situation and seek peace.
