Syria denounces Arab League for telling Assad to quit


Emblem of the Arab League

Syria on Monday rebuffed an Arab League call for President Bashar al-Assad to step down in favor of a unity government. Assad qualified the move as interference in Syria’s internal affairs, underlining his determination to defeat a 10-month-old uprising seeking his overthrow. It was not immediately clear whether Syria would accept the League’s decision to keep Arab observers in the country for another month despite their failure to stem bloodshed in which hundreds of people have died since their deployment on December 26.
