(Original Caption) 11/27/1956-Beirut, Lebanon- A pro-Russian triumvirate was reported by an Arab diplomatic source Monday to have taken over control of Syria. The spokesman said that President Shukri Al-Kuwatly (right) and his cabinet have been reduced to mere "robber stamps." Kuwatly is shown with King Faisal of Iraq, left, and King Hussein of Jordan at a recent meeting in Lebanon of Arab rulers. The report of the Syrian coup claims the country is presently being ruled in "Soviet style" by three men: Col. Abdul Hamid Sarraj; Foreign Minister Salah Bitar and Kham Bakdash, Secretary General of the Communist Party.
