Syrian Army: lo(o)se cannon

The Syrian Army, withdrawing from a section of Lebanon, somehow "lost" a "cannon" and had to ask the public to help search for it:

A Syrian army convoy heading home from Lebanon as part of a partial pullback crossed the borders early Monday only to find that a cannon had gone missing along the way, Lebanese police sources said.

A convoy of 12 military transport vehicles reached the main Masnaa border post, 70 kilometres (42 miles) east of the capital, they said.

But upon crossing the borders, the troops noticed that the cannon which had been towed by the last vehicle in the convoy had disappeared, they said.

After asking passers-by and carrying out searches, Syrian troops recovered the cannon on the side of a main road in the city of Shtaura, about 20 kilometers (12 miles) west of the borders.
