Syrian Arab League membership suspended

CAIRO, Egypt - Arab League acted to suspend the membership of Syria in the body following the brutal actions of the Syrian government to break the people's country for the past eight months ago.

The decision was announced on Tuesday gave a blow to Syria that had been deemed as the last bastion of nationalism of the Arab world.

However, it is seen to be unable to immediately end the violence in Syria, killing more than 3,500 people since the people of that country rise up to urge President Bashar Al-Assad resigned in mid-March.

"Syria is a country that we love and we make this decision with a heavy heart," said Foreign Minister of Qatar, Hamad bin Jassim.

"We hope that Syria will take bold action to end violence and begin a dialogue on reform in the country," he added.

Meanwhile, the Syrian capital, Damascus, the pro-government protesters threw eggs and tomatoes toward the Embassy of Qatar in protest at the decision.

All 22 members of the Arab League will monitor the situation in Syria prior to reconsider its decision at a meeting in Rabat, Morocco, the day after tomorrow. - AP
