    Arab League leaders meeting in Iraq have called on the Syrian government to implement a UN-backed peace plan "immediately and completely", as they met for a summit in the capital Baghdad.

    Nine heads of state and UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon were among those attending the opening of the summit in the former Republican Palace on Thursday, the first such meeting in Iraq for 22 years.
