DUBAI - Arab League monitors made "mistakes" in Syria during a mission to investigate a crackdown on nine months of anti-government protests, Kuwait's state news agency quoted the prime minister of Qatar as saying, without elaborating.

"This is the first experience for us ... and I said we must evaluate the types of mistakes it (the mission) made and without a shadow of a doubt I see mistakes, even though we went in (to Syria) to observe, not to stop the violence," said Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim al-Thani after a meeting with UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon in New York.

Sheikh Hamad, who also chairs an Arab League taskforce on Syria, did not elaborate on the "mistakes", but said he was seeking "technical help" from the UN
