    The Arab League has given Syria three days to end its violent crackdown on anti-government protesters and implement an Arab peace deal or face suspension from the regional body.

    Wael Merza, secretary general of the Syrian National Council, told Al Jazeera that the outcome of the Arab League meeting marked "a historic day for Syria as a country, the Syrian revolution and the Arab League where the Arab people as a whole heard the voices of the Syrian people who have been calling for such measures in the past months".
