CAIRO - The head of the Arab League said in remarks broadcast on Friday he was worried about the prospect of a Syrian civil war with consequences for the country's neighbors.

"Yes I fear a civil war and the events that we see and hear about now could lead to a civil war," said Nabil Elaraby, whose body currently has monitors in Syria checking its compliance with an agreement aimed at halting a crackdown on protesters.

"Any problems in Syria will have consequences for the neighboring states," he said in an interview with the Egyptian Al-Hayat channel.
