Bush Signs Measure on Syria Sanctions

From Times Wire Reports

President Bush signed legislation calling for economic penalties against Syria for not doing enough to fight terrorism.

The legislation says Syria has provided a haven for anti-Israel groups such as Hamas and Islamic Jihad and has pursued biological and chemical weapons.

It states that Syria must end its support of terrorists, terminate its 27-year military presence in Lebanon, stop efforts to obtain weapons of mass destruction and long-range missiles and stop terrorists from entering Iraq. If Syria fails to do so, it could face sanctions.
