7 killed as Arab League launches Syria peace bid
Damascus, Sep 10: Syrian forces killed seven people today, activists said, as they tried to crush anti-regime dissent as Arab League chief Nabil al-Arabi met President Bashar al-Assad to broker an end to the bloodshed.
Arabi carried a 13-point document outlining Arab proposals to halt the deadly crackdown, hold elections and push for reforms in the League member state.
The attempt by the 22-member pan-Arab body to resolve the festering Syria crisis takes place with the United States set to ramp up work on a UN Security Council resolution targeting Syria.
"We're looking at accelerating that work next week," US State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said in reference to a draft resolution likely to include sanctions. AFP
