CAIRO - About a hundred protesters camped outside the Arab League in Cairo hurled eggs at a delegation of Syrian opposition figures who arrived there for talks on Wednesday, accusing them of working covertly for President Bashar Assad's government.

The four-member delegation was due to meet with Arab League Secretary General Nabil Elaraby as the regional body gears up for an emergency meeting on Saturday to discuss the continued military crackdown on protesters in Syria.

"This delegation is 100 percent fake. They want dialogue for the sake of the regime and its survival," said Syrian protester Amin, who refused to give his full name.

"We hurled eggs at those traitors and they turned away. We do not want negotiations with the Syrian regime. We demand the fall of the regime," he added.
