CAIRO - Arab foreign ministers will discuss whether to suspend Syria from the regional body at a meeting on Sunday, but some states oppose such a move, a permanent delegate to the League said.

"The emergency meeting will consider suspending Syria's membership," the delegate said. "Some Arab states clearly oppose suspending Syria's membership."

Syrian President Bashar Assad has intensified a military crackdown to crush protests demanding his resignation. The United Nations says the crackdown has killed 3,000 people.

The source said the League's demands were for the Syrian government to lay down a timetable for pulling out of Syrian towns and to stop killing civilians.
