CAIRO - Arab League chief Nabil Elaraby said on Sunday he may visit Syria this week to voice Arab worries about violence there after Damascus sent troops and tanks to crush street protests against President Bashar Assad's rule

"The Syrian government told me that it welcomes the visit of the secretary-general at any time, and it will probably be this week," Elaraby told a news conference at the league's headquarters in Cairo.

"I did not ask for guarantees and will communicate the Arab worries about the incidents in Syria and listen to the opinion of the Syrian authorities," he said.

The Syrian government has sent in troops and tanks to crush over five months of street protests demanding Assad steps down, killing at least 2,200 protesters according to the United Nations.
