Suicide Syrian Style

You could see this one coming (bolding mine):

Damascus, 12 Oct. (AKI) – Syria’s government has formed a committee to investigate interior minister Ghazi Kanaan’s apparent suicide in his office on Wednesday, according to unnamed Syrian sources. The commission of inquiry has been tasked with probing the circumstances of his death. Kanaan died in a Damascus hospital of gunshot wounds to the head, the American TV network CNN reported, quoting Syrian officials.

Either it’s a bad translation, or those Syrians have a very dry sense of humor.
