The Arab League said Tuesday it would indefinitely postpone the first annual “Conference on Defending Jerusalem,” scheduled to begin in Qatar the same day, due to the precarious situation in Egypt and some other Arab countries, the official Chinese news agency Xinhua reported.

Muhammad Soubie, an assistant to the Arab League secretary-general, announced the postponement in a statement after a series of consultations between the emirate and the Arab bloc.
