CAIRO - The Arab League on Tuesday condemned the use of force against pro-democracy protesters in several Arab countries, saying they "deserve support, not bullets".

In a rare statement on the unrest sweeping across the Middle East, the 22-member Arab League said it would ask foreign ministers to discuss this "serious situation" during a meeting scheduled for next month.

"The people's demands for freedom and democracy are demands that require support ... not bullets in the chests of demonstrators," the Arab League said in the statement, received by Reuters on Tuesday.
