CAIRO - The main opposition Syrian National Council has presented the Arab League with a formal request to refer the Syrian crisis to the UN Security Council, the group's spokeswoman Basma ElKadamny said on Saturday.

Syrian opposition groups have called in the past for the case to be referred to the Security Council but had not made a formal request to the 22-member Arab body.
