Arab League offers Assad 'safe exit'

World Bulletin / News Desk

The Arab League's secretary general has offered Syrian President Bashar Assad a "safe exit" for him and his family if he steps down.

Nabil Elaraby gave no further details on his proposal at an Arab League foreign ministers' meeting in Doha, Qatar, early Monday morning.

The League also promised $100 million for Syrian refugees in neighboring countries.

Tunisian President President Moncef Marzouki also offered Assad asylum in February if it would end the conflict.

Assad has shown little inclination to step down.
