Arab League confirms Syria visit date

Arab League chief Nabil Elaraby will visit Syria on Wednesday to pass on Arab concerns about the Syrian government's violent crackdown on protests against President Bashar al-Assad's rule, an Arab League source told Reuters.

"Arab League confirms that the League's secretary general will visit Syria on Wednesday and details on the duration and details of the visit will be released tomorrow," the source said, confirming a report by Egypt's news agency MENA.

Elaraby said on Sunday that the Syrian government had accepted a request from the Arab League for a visit.

Arab governments broke months of silence at a meeting at the League's headquarters in Cairo last week demanding Syria end months of bloodshed, and decided to send Elaraby to Damascus to push for political and economic reforms.
