Syria signs deal to allow Arab League observers into country | guardian.co.uk

Syria has signed an Arab League initiative that will allow Arab observers into the country, as part of an effort to end the nation’s nine-month-old crisis.

Up to now Damascus had resisted signing. The regime’s final acceptance of the deal comes after mounting international pressure to end a bloody crackdown on protest that the UN says has killed at least 5,000 and shows signs of descending into civil war.

Syria appears to prefer to give Arab nations a chance to end the crisis instead of inviting wider international involvement.
