An Algerian delegate who resigned from the Arab League’s observer mission in Syria details the Assad regime’s methods of intimidation and provocation in its attempt to keep the observers quiet. Assad’s tactics included death threats, public humiliation and sexual seduction, according to the delegate. He went on to say that Homs should be declared a “disaster city,” and that the only way to stop the killing of civilians is to send in foreign troops. He fled Syria after a failed assassination attempt nearly took his life.
