CAIRO - The Arab League plans to impose a travel ban on top Syrian officials as it steps up pressure to end a crackdown on protests in the country, according to a draft document circulated before ministers meet on Sunday.

Damascus missed a Friday deadline to agree an Arab League proposal to send monitors to Syria, where the United Nations says 3,500 people have been killed in the eight-month uprising against Syrian President Bashar Assad.

At a preparatory meeting in Cairo on Saturday, the Arab League's Social and Economic Committee was finalizing sanctions that could also include a ban on flights to Syria, freezing Syrian government bank accounts and halting financial dealings.
