AMMAN - Syria is seeking changes to a plan for monitoring its implementation of an Arab League peace initiative, the group's chief said on Friday, on the eve of a deadline for Damascus to carry out steps to end eight months of bloodshed.

Activists said security forces killed 11 people after weekly prayers in the latest crackdown on protests against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad which the United Nations says has killed at least 3,500 people since March.

The Arab League has suspended Syria and set a Saturday deadline for it to heed the Arab peace plan that entails a military pullout from around restive Syrian cities and towns, threatening sanctions unless Assad acts to halt the violence.

Arab League Secretary-General Nabil Elaraby said the organization was studying a letter from Syria which "included amendments to the draft protocol regarding the legal status and duties of the monitoring mission of the Arab League to Syria."
