In a gesture of defiance, more than 200 Syrian writers, artists and rights activists issued an open letter to President Bashar al-Assad on Wednesday calling on his regime to withdraw from Lebanon.

"Outside pressures are building in all sorts of ways. The Syrian people don't know what is awaiting them as the old political methods are no longer able to resolve crises," the letter said, a copy of which was received by AFP.
