Arab League urges Syria to end bloodshed


The Arab League has called for an end to bloodshed in Syria “before it is too late” and urged respect for

its people’s right to reforms.

Secretary-General Nabil Elaraby will travel to Damascus to try to mediate a solution to the crisis, following a special meeting of the body in Cairo.

It was its first official gathering on Syria since the start of five months of unrest that the UN says has left more than 2,000 people dead.

Pro-democracy protesters hostile to President Assad made sure their voices were heard outside the League’s headquarters in the Egyptian capital.

Many Arab commentators have criticised the organisation for its timid reaction to the crackdown.
