Arab League considers revival of Syrian mission
Sunday 12 February 2012
Arab League officials say the 22-member group is considering reviving its suspended observer mission in Syria, expanding it to include monitors from non-Arab, Muslim nations and maybe involvement by the United Nations.
The officials say the proposal will be discussed in a meeting in Cairo on Sunday by a "Syria Group" made up of seven member states led by Qatar. The group will make recommendations to an Arab League foreign ministers' meeting in the Egyptian capital later on Sunday.
The observers mission was suspended after a surge in violence in Syria, where President Bashar Assad's regime has launched a harsh crackdown on an uprising that began 11 months ago.
The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because the proposals had not yet been adopted.
