Bashar al-Assad's wife and mother face an EU travel ban

President Bashar al-Assad's wife Asma, a Western-educated former banker and style icon, faces an EU travel ban and asset freeze along with other members of Assad's family, diplomats said Thursday, reports the AFP.

Asma al-Assad is on a list of 12 Syrians, including a handful of the president's relatives, to be put to European Union foreign ministers Friday for a decision to bar them from travel and freeze their accounts across the 27-nation bloc.

The ministers, who in 12 previous rounds of sanctions against the Assad regime have already blacklisted some 150 firms and people, will also decide whether to add two extra firms to the list.
