Syria crackdown continues prompting urgent Arab League talks | The Guardian

The Arab League has called for an emergency meeting on Syria after government forces there killed at least 13 civilians in attacks on pro-democracy protests in Homs after prayers on one of Islam’s holiest days.

The deaths – on the first day of the Muslim festival of Eid al-Adha – brought to 60 the number of protesters killed since Damascus officially accepted an Arab League peace plan on Wednesday in which it undertook to pursue a peaceful resolution to Syria’s political crisis and pull the army out of restive cities.
