A teacher leaves Damascus Community School in Damascus, Syria, Monday, Nov. 3, 2008. Students at an American school in Damascus have been asked to leave for home in line with a government decision to shut the school in response to a deadly U.S. attack near the Iraqi border. Syria retaliated to the Oct. 26 U.S. raid that it says killed eight people by ordering the closure of the Damascus Community School and the U.S. Cultural Center. (AP Photo/Bassem Tellawi)
