Rifaat al-Assad, brother of former Syrian president, Hafez.

Nice piece from Robert Fisk – an interview with the son of Rifaat al-Assad, brother of the former Syrian president, Hafez. According to this article Rifaat is now living in London – not that Fisk is holding out much hope of an interview.

    We are linked. Hopefully you’ll get some traffic from this neck of the woods. Send some Middle Eastern readers over this way, too!
