In Syria: Arab League strikes “deal”

leave a comment »

From Reuters:

Algeria’s Foreign Minister Mourad Medelci said on Tuesday an Arab League committee charged with seeking an end to the violence in Syria had reached agreement with Syrian authorities, Al Arabiya television reported.

Arab diplomats said the ministers proposed that Syria release immediately prisoners held since February, withdraw security forces from the streets, permit deployment of Arab League monitors and start a dialogue with the opposition.

Either the “deal” isn’t as stringent as it sounds or President al-Assad is feeling threatened all of a sudden. Official announcements to come.
