Austria peacekeepers begin Golan withdrawal

Departure of 400 Austrian troops raises security concerns in Syrian territory seized by Israel.

    Austria has begun withdrawing its peacekeepers from the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.

    Two peacekeepers were hurt recently when Syria's war spilled into the region.

    The Austrian withdrawal cuts the UN mission by a third and it is still uncertain which nations will send reinforcements.
