Arab League to discuss sending troops to Syria
According to a representative of the Arab League, the organization has decided that prior to the meeting next weekend on Syria there will be no further observers sent to the country. AL Secretary General Nabil El-Arabi, has said the presence of the observers have "undoubtedly" reduced the bloody conflict in Syria. However, the report of the observer is worrying. The situation in Syria could lead to civil war, warned El-Arabi.
Meanwhile, it is reported that the Arab League is considering talks on the deployment of troops to Syria. At the meeting next Saturday, this question could be raised, said al-Arabi. "All ideas are likely to be discussed," he stressed.
Since the eruption of the crisis in mid-March, more than 5,000 people have been killed in Syria, according to UN figures.
