Syria Agrees to Arab League deal to allow observers

[ via The Independent ] 19 Dec

Syria signed an Arab League initiative yesterday that will allow observers into the country as part of an effort to end the nation's increasingly bloody nine-month crisis. But the main opposition group accused the regime of stalling.

The regime's acceptance of Arab observers came after a warning from Arab leaders that they would turn to the UN Security Council to try to end President Bashar al-Assad's crackdown that the UN says has killed at least 5,000 people.
