Three top Syrian security chiefs sought on French arrest warrants

The international arrest warrants issued by France accuse three top Syrian security chiefs with collusion in torture, forced disappearances, crimes against humanity and war crimes. They target Syria’s security chief Ali Mamlouk, a senior adviser to President Bashar Assad, Jamil Hassan, head of the Syrian air force’s intelligence agency, and Abdel Salam Mahmoud, head of the air force intelligence’s investigative branch at Mezzeh military airport in Damascus. The warrants were issued on Oct. 8 but made public on Monday.
