ABU DHABI - Arab League monitors in Syria to oversee a halt to a violent crackdown on protesters have been targeted by "non-opposition" elements and are not allowed to move around freely, the United Arab Emirates' foreign minister said on Tuesday.

A team of observers arrived in Syria last month to verify whether the government is implementing a plan to scale back its military presence and free thousands of prisoners detained since the uprising against President Bashar Assad began last March.
