BRUSSELS - Syria must quickly implement the commitments it made to the Arab League to end violence and allow opposition groups to operate, the European Union said on Thursday.

Syria agreed on Wednesday to an Arab League plan to withdraw its army from cities, release political prisoners and hold talks with the opposition, but activists said security forces killed 10 people in Homs on Thursday and there was no sign yet of troops leaving urban areas.

EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton welcomed the Arab League plan, but added in a statement:

"It is now vital that the commitments made by the Syrian authorities to the Arab League are followed through fully and rapidly, under Arab scrutiny.
