Arab League condemns attacks on observers
Cairo: The Arab League is blaming both the Syrian government and opposition for attacks on its observers in Syria.
Arab League head Nabil Elaraby indicated such attacks could bring about the end of the observer mission.
He spoke after protesters mobbed a Kuwaiti observers` vehicle, slightly injuring two officers. Protesters posted video showing that the attackers were backers of the Bashar Assad regime.
Elaraby said Tuesday that the Syrian government is responsible for ensuring the safety of the observers. Their mission is to monitor compliance with an Arab League plan to stop violence after a 10-month uprising and a bloody crackdown on protesters.
He called on both the government and opposition to stop "instigation," so that the Arab League would not be forced to "freeze its mission."
