    Asma al-Assad: Syria's first lady treated for breast cancer

    Asma al-Assad: Syria's first lady treated for breast cancer





    The wife of the Syrian President, Bashar al-Assad, has been diagnosed with breast cancer.
    Officials confirmed on Wednesday that Mrs Assad was receiving treatment for an early-stage malignant tumour.
    Born and raised in London, the Syrian first lady has been a highly controversial figure.
    She was one of twelve people placed under EU sanctions in 2012 over the government's violent response to the Syrian uprising.
    A photograph of Mrs Assad and her husband was posted on Twitter together with the words: "Mrs Asma al-Assad begins the first stage of treatment for a malignant breast tumour that was discovered early.... the Presidency and its team wish Mrs Asma a speedy recovery."


    A dual British-Syrian national, Mrs Assad attended school and university in London before becoming an investment banker.
    She moved to Syria in 2000 and married former ophthalmologist Bashar al-Assad, just months after he succeeded his father Hafez al-Assad as president
