Syrian authorities have arrested a pro-government activist who launched a social media campaign calling on officials to provide information about hundreds of missing soldiers, residents and activists said Monday.In a rare display of shaming officials, the post, which was shared over 156 times, named two senior military officers as personally responsible for Khaddur's safety. Another post called on Assad to intervene.There was no mention on Syrian state media of Khaddur's arrest.Khaddur's campaign began after last week's fall of Tabqa air base, the last major position held by government forces in the northern Raqqa province, largely controlled by ISIS.After ISIS footage of the executions surfaced, Khaddur and a few other government loyalists, including the president's cousin Duraid Assad, called for top officials including the defense and information ministers to resign.
