The Arab League should publicly release its Mission's final report on Syrian protests, Human Rights Watch declared Friday. In an open letter addressed to the Arab Foreign Ministers Council, the human rights NGO urged the League to "address concerns that the monitoring mission is being manipulated by the Syrian authorities."

The organization also urged the League to refer Syria to the International Criminal Court and to impose an arms embargo on Damascus in conjunction with the United Nations.

Arab League monitors have been in Syria since December 26, verifying Syria's compliance with an Arab plan that called for an end to killings, an army withdrawal from the streets, release of detainees and a political dialogue.
